Rochester, NY – Our Back-Yard Part 18 ~ Digital Painting By Gabe ~

Hello everyone and welcome to part 18 of “Rochester, NY – Our Back Yard” in our continuing exploration around our home town.

Today is special because …

we are going back in time to a post we did March 20, 2017 on our visit to Letchworth State Park titled “Rochester, NY – Our Back-Yard part 11” .  Shortly after that story one of our treasured followers, Gabe Burkhardt of “(Almost) Unsalvageable” sent us an email asking if it was okay for him to complete a digital painting of one of the scenes we captured on camera.  Without hesitation, our response was “we would be honored” and the next thing we knew there it was.

As you view this wonderful work of art we believe you will agree he captured the scene exquisitely in all its splendor.  To see the original photograph please click on this link “Rochester, NY – Our Back-Yard part 11“.

For those of you that haven’t been to his web site yet please make time to stop on over and check out the incredible accomplishments this young man has achieved.  Each time we receive notification of his post we immediately grab something to drink and settle in knowing we are going to experience every emotion humanly possible.  We can’t list any one post as our favorite because we would be listing every one of them.

Gabe, we truly have been touched by meeting you in this huge world of bloggers and that you made time to complete a digital painting of one of our photographs.  We truly look forward to that day we meet you in person.  Until that time comes though we will be following along with you in exciting anticipation of your next adventure.

  1. I am so glad to have found this one – because I followed the link to one of the Rochester posts I’d missed. The painting rendition is magical – what an honor to have one of your journeys commemorated in this fashion.

    NOW heading over to check out his blog.

  2. This is what is great about you Gabe… you are so humble and that is such a great trait. You suggest its easy enough for anyone but we’re not so sure about that. You have a great gift and we sure do feel honored to have one of our photos done by you. Thank you so much.

  3. Really glad you enjoyed the sketch. I use my iPad Pro as the canvas (using a painting app called ProCreate) and an Apple Pencil as my brush. I’m not as talented as I’d like to be so I usually use the photo to help me capture the important pieces.
    The important thing is, its easy enough that anyone with plenty of patience can create their own digital sketches as well.

  4. You are so right. There is nothing like being there and seeing it in person. The camera (maybe the operator) just can’t seem to capture the true image. I guess its like golf after that perfect chip onto the green…. you keep going back hoping to do it again.
