This photo was taken halfway through painting a sign that was a Christmas present for my mother-in-law, Linda. It’s for the lake house on Lake Skaneateles in the finger lakes region of New York. We’ve been fortunate to go there for a week two summers in a row now, and its always a wonderful time filled with fresh food and fantastic dessert and sailing and reading and exploring. I’ll post a picture of the finished sign another time…I forgot to take one before I packed in the box to send off. We just made it to the UPS office before they closed…and that was with me using a hair-dryer to dry the paint.
The final version is painted a reddish color, with more lettering above the fox. Linda specified all the wording for the sign. The bottom lettering says, in French, “One Dreams Here.”
