The Bruges Canals Vintage image is a photograph that I took while on a European travel adventure. I was intrigued by the medieval architecture along the canal, under the cloudy sky. The image was edited using a several filters to create the vintage look.
Bruges, also known as the Venice of the North, is a UNESCO World Heritage site. The city, the capital of the province of West Flanders, is famous for its picturesque churches, mansions, houses, canals, and alleyways. Early records suggest that the city was founded around 840 and is considered a Bronze Age and Iron Age settlement. Bruges is one of the most well-preserved medieval towns in Europe. The name, Bruges, is likely from the Old Dutch dialect for bridge.
Creating portals of light, love, joy, beauty, compassion, hope and gratitude is my lifelong passion and gift for the earth, hence the name of my art business, For the Earth. My mother painted in oils when I was young and encouraged my own drawing, painting and handcrafting in all forms. My father, the photographer, gave me my first camera at age 8. As a result of these loving influences, I am a lifelong student of both mediums. I am grateful to my wonderful Pacific NW painter teachers, Stan Capon and Edi Olson, for training my eye and technique. I hope you will enjoy this image as much as I enjoyed its creation.
