The stately sunflower is found in many places. France has fields of them harvested for their oil.

4. Late Afternoon in the Quilt Garden
This favorite spot is irresitable. The echo of the mountains' tradition of quilting is delightful. Year-long, the Quilt Garden is a palette of flowers and plants changing with the seasons.

Leaving St. Johns, the clutter of small boats along the harbor waterfront, delight the eye.

The Alpe di Siusi, a preserved alpine area of Austria with the peaks of the Dolomite Mountains. This is "Sound of Music" country.

The grandeur is breathtaking.
21" x 28" - $1,000

At the Childrens' Palace in Shanghai, grandmothers come to this after school program with their grandchildren who study music, dance, art and calligraphy.

This enduring symbol of China snakes across the mountains for thousands of miles. It failed to keep out the barbarians and is visited by the thousands today.

The heavy smog of a warm day in Beijing brings an ethereal haze to the massive buildings and courtyards of this ancient palace city.

On a stop along the river to visit the Temple of Ghosts, these boats begged to be painted.

At the Chongqing Zoo, his name is "Ya-Ya". These panda charm people of all ages. Cute to watch, but they can be vicious.
