You certainly made me smile, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: HA! I love it, Ray. smile
smile Well good to keep in mind isn't it! This is a very precious tile (I assume). Love your presentation!
Ginnie Hart: It belongs to a set of many boat tiles hanging on the wall behind a free-standing wood stove as a back-splash, Elizabeth. This was my favorite of the bunch.
sometimes trying to get a straight horizon... you miss what you were trying to photograph Ginnie...

i love the painting and the way that you presented it....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Besides, it's harder for painters to use PhotoShop! smile Thanks, Peter.

smile Rough times, always going UP the stream grin....
Great shot and I love those tiles. Love the simplicity and the soft colours.
Wonderful presentation.
Ginnie Hart: Maybe this is a Dutch way of saying it hasn't always been easy, figuring out what to do with all that water! smile Bedankt, MLMA.
Maybe the start of a tsunami.
Ginnie Hart: Now that's an idea, Michael, though I hope not!

I used to have wonderful sloping seas until I found out how to make my compositions a little more bearable Ginnie..
Ginnie Hart: HA! After so many jokes about sliding off the face of the earth, Chris, we eventually figure it out. smile

Oh, I love the tiles- tegels - and this is an especially beautiful and colourful one!
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Philine. We see tiles everywhere here in Dutchland, of course, so when I see one with a boat, it's extra special. smile

Oh, I could show you some tiles with a boat in Münster and Munstershire (restaurants, Burg Vischering) - one of the favourite themes on tiles as far as I know.
Ginnie Hart: It's fun, Philine, isn't it! smile

I enjoy your unique ways of depicting Boat Friday, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Big Sis. It's hard to miss the boats we see everywhere here in this water-logged country. smile
They didn't have a computer Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Bill. No comments to ridicule them, either! smile

He did get his verticals straight tho' and those are better concentric circles than I could do, freehand or otherwise!
Ginnie Hart: There's always a silver lining if you look for it, Mike. Good for you. smile

It's artistic freedom, Ginnie. ;-)
Ginnie Hart: Yes, indeed, HF. smile

Hhaahah... It's a bete noire for me in photographs (although I'm not perfect wink ) but I can forgive some artistic license in something like this. Looks like he needs to drop that sail otherwise he will smash into the rocks smile
Ginnie Hart: A pet peeve for many of us, Alan, but at least we can laugh about it...and make our jokes. smile

Well jolly good for them I say Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA! I guess we all learn from each other, Chad, right? smile
Ha ha... Don't be so pedantic.
Anyway, this is what we call "art". Imperfection is one of them! Ha ha smile
Ginnie Hart: Who, ME...pedantic??? LOL. Okay, LC. You win.

Very beautiful and little bit naive earthenware in its drawing but it is really attractive
Ginnie Hart: Isn't it fun, Marie, to find boats everywhere! smile
It drives me crazy but what can you do.
Ginnie Hart: Not a thing, Mary. smile
Great shot, Ginnie. The tile is gorgeous, simple but stunning.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Pauline. This is so Dutch. smile
I'm not worried about the sloping horizon in this, what a beautiful tile it is.
Ginnie Hart: Good, Brian. Sometimes we need not be so critical!
they may not have photoshop and other powerful tools at their disposal Ginnie grin
Maybe the painter was having several dips into the drink as well as the paint. ; )
