Even if you've never heard of Banff you've probably seen pictures of the area without realizing it. Here are a few:
|The Canadian Rockies.|
|The Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel from Surprise Corner on Thunder Mountain Road.|
|The turquoise waters of Lake Louise and the impressive Fairmont Chateau.|
|The Sulphur Mountain Gondola.|
|You can always find wildlife on the Bow Valley Parkway.|
Besides I'm having my own fun today by painting an old chair in 90 degree heat with a heat index of 172. When I came inside for more water Taylor said I was sweating in unsightly places. I told her I would try to sweat in a more pleasing pattern from now on.
My little squirrel friends were scampering around the yard while I painted. They're getting more and more brave and not running up the tree when we come outside now. They know we are the bringers of the nuts. I practically felt like Snow White surrounded by all the forest animals and halfway expected a bird to land on my shoulder. I guess it's a good thing it didn't since I probably would have panicked and accidentally killed it with flailing arms.
The chair I'm working on is bamboo and has held up surprisingly well over the years. It belonged to my grandmother and I think she probably bought it sometime in the 70s. I use it as my desk chair which makes that whole corner of the living room way too brown. I have no intention of painting the desk since I love it just the way it is. But the chair could use a facelift.
I'll post pictures when I finish it or get bored with it, whichever comes first.
