Shoot Six - Art Gallery Complex

Prague was a tough one! But, not too tough for Elaine, Carol, Michelle, Mariann, Milt, Joani, and Jim!

"365 Paintings!"

The Art Complex in Duxbury wanted to feature my daughter's passion, or at least part of it. Lisa has been painting and blogging about her daily paintings since May of 2009 - some twenty-eight hundred paintings! Every day (holidays included) she produces a small (usually 6" x 6") painting. When it is dried she scans and posts it on her blog. Many of these have been purchased off the blog and are adorning the walls of homes and offices worldwide!

Her daily ritual has drawn the attention of many. Because of this she has been the featured artist at numerous art studios across the country and even in Italy!

The curator for the Art Complex asked to exhibit an entire year of her still life paintings. So, what you see above is three hundred sixty-six paintings from May of 2015 to April of 2016!

It was quite an impressive display of her talent. Yes, you should notice the sense of pride from her Dad!

Where in the World?

Better get out the atlas as this year I will be featuring some of the more famous cities of the world! Here are some interesting facts about one of them. Just what city would I be visiting? 

this city is the most popular tourist destination on the continent.

it is the most populous city in the country.

is known for the natural setting of the floral kingdom, its harbour and other known landmarks like the Cape Point and Table Mountain.

Table Bay owes its early development to the Dutch East India Company, which was a supply station for the Dutch ships that were sailing to Eastern Africa, Far East and India.

People like this place because of its good climate, well-developed structure and natural setting.

You should also include on your tour the places that make it possible for this city to be known for its cultural attractions like the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, the Cape Flats among many other places.

Bonus clue: The city was originally created as the first European outpost on the Castle of Good Hope. This has become a cultural hub as well as the economic post of the Cape Colony.
