This may look like a Kincadian fantasy, but it is actually based on a photograph, taken somewhere in rural Niagara.
Mind you, If I were so lucky as to have Thomas Kincaid's financial success, I think I could learn to swallow what little artistic pride I possess.

Well the chocolate pot isn't really an everyday article, but it belonged to my mother-in-law and has been sitting in my house for more than 20 years.
