Green Reflections, Original Watercolor by Jenny Armitage

Llangollen Reflections (watercolor 17 x 23) available

I took the reference photo I used for this painting on the Llangollen Canal, from our narrowboat rental.  But it could be still water and trees, just about anywhere.

The Standing and the Fallen

After the Ice Storm, Salem Oregon, Painting by Jenny Armitage

The Standing and the Fallen (16 x 23 watercolor) available.

This Spring Salem, Oregon had back to back ice storms leading to many downed trees and branches.  While I mourn many of the trees lost, nature’s thinning does have it’s compensations.  One of those is that woods around our house, are an entirely new place, while still remaining beautiful.  This lit up hillside was dark, tangled,  and mossy just months ago.  Now it is bright and open.

This is the beautifully rural Llangollen Canal, near Llangollen, Wales.  As you can see from the wake, I took the reference photos for this painting looking back over the stern of our little narrowboat.   To be ridiculously specific, this Bridge 36W looking back towards Trevor Basin on the last leg of our journey to Llangollen itself.  Its idyllic up there.

The Bones of Dinas Bran

The Bones of Dinas Bran, Original Watercolor Painting by Jenny Armitage

The Bones of Dinas Bran (watercolor 19 x 23) Available

This  is bits and pieces of what’s left of Castell Dinas Bran, sometimes referred to as  Crow’s Fortress or Crow Castle.  The castle was probably built  sometime in the 1260s by Gruffydd II ap Madog, making it the only Welsh Castle we visited to actually have been built by the Welsh.   The castle is now an evocative ruin perched on the hilltop above Llangollen.

We walked a mile or so up to see it after having moored within sight of it the night before.  It’s a powerful sight whether seen from above or below.

Purchase fine art prints here.

Late Afternoon Denbighshire, Original Landscape by Jenny Armitage

Late Afternoon Denbighshire (watercolor 17 x 23) available

We are just back from a narrowboating trip on the Llangollen Canal in North Wales.  Paradoxically, we spent much of our week’s boat rental walking on dry land both along the canal and into the countryside.  This particular walk was along part of the Offa’s Dyke Path just a few miles west of Chirk Marina.  The typical slate farmhouse in the mid-ground was visible for most of our late afternoon walk. Prints are available here.

Aqua Falls, Original Painting of Opal Creek by Jenny Armitage

Aqua Falls (watercolor 16 x 23) SOLD

No these falls aren’t actually named the Aqua Falls. I don’t know their name. I think of them as the aqua falls, because the water is the most beautiful aqua color there. There being the first falls on the Opal Creek Trail, east of Salem, Oregon. If you hike the trail you’ll find them just as you reach the abandoned mill machinery. You have to scramble a little off trail down some rocks to reach this view of them. The good news is you’ll probably have them to yourself.

This painting has sold, but you may still purchase a fine art print.
