Well, they've arrived. And as I thought, the Lighthouse is my FAVORITE!

Brigitte...they did the enameling for you. It's gorgeous! smile.gif

Lisa...the base is definitely in the Strongwater style...you just have to love it! Incredible.

I could put up a picture, but it would take away from the pleasant surprise that Ann and Ken always have in store for us. I just do photo's...they can tell a story with a picture!

Can't wait to see it...

Michele

If you're wondering why I haven't said anything about the Mississippi Riverboat, it's because I haven't decided whether or not I really, truly like it. Am trying to remember if there were goal posts on the last Riverboat I saw.... laugh.gif

hmmmmmmmm...... blink.gif

If you have pictures of the two I think the members would like to see them in their natural state. We are all not as creative as A & K and would like to see them au natural so to speak. I know if I had pictures of them I would have posted them. Come on quit teasing us. As they say in poker if you got em show em. LOL

I really like the lighthouse but am not crazy about the steamboat.

What does everyone else think?

Thanks Woody!

Woody,

Your photographs are beautiful .. and so clear. Thanks so much for sharing with everyone! The Lighthouse is a real beauty, and the paddle boat, too. biggrin.gif




I just noticed an anchor lying on the grass in front on the lighthouse. What a great detail!

The steamboat reminds me of the S.F.Trolley!? Something about it!

Thanks Woody for sharing the pictures. biggrin.gif

Not sure about the riverboat, don't know yet why. maybe when I get it I will like it better. I have painted many of riverboats and none looked like this one. huh.gif

Maybe we will drive down to the river tomorrow and take a look.

Ken's office also looks out over the Mississippi and he thinks because the solid is so short it makes it look funny. The high stacks are correct and so is the cross bar between them.

The lighthouse looks good so far but again have to get my hands on it for final judgement.

Hey Michele,

Maybe you are remembering the Steamships up North compared to the Riverboats down South. laugh.gif laugh.gif

At least EL didn't make this one a side wheeler. biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

Thanks for the pics, Woody - you're a nice guy.

Well, seems everyone is quite taken by the lighthouse, but not the steamboat. Funnily enough, going by the pictures (until I get them in my hot little hand), I prefer the STEAMBOAT (YAY!!!) over the lighthouse . . . . IMHO (as Ann says), I have seen many a lighthouse over here and personally don't think this one is pretty!

OK, I'm ready for the firing squad!
