Giethoorn to Lemmer

Giethoorn is a waterland fantasy, a tiny village founded by a flagellant sect from somewhere in the Mediterranean, per the wiki.  I think they were Italians as I have read so somewhere a while back.  Now it is a major tourist destination and often referred to as  the Venice of the North, it is best seen from the punters, traditional flat bottom boats.  it is the combination of thatched roofs, lush gardens, canals and the 150 foot bridges that makes the place so charming.   There is a mere 2700 inhabitants so a walk, bike or boat tour does not take more than an hour and a half.

 

My paintings and drawings.  Some are still available for sale.

Giethoorn miniature paintings

This small village is thick with canals, 180 foot bridges and brick houses with thatched roofs, making for picturesque scenes at every turn.  It was founded by Franciscians circa 1200.  Now 2600 people live there.  We took a boat through the canals.  Here are my favorite spots.  All are miniatures, approximately 4″ x 6″.  The watercolors are on post card stock.
