Doug Fraser Art Gallery and Sculpture Garden

The scenery is as beautiful as the art at this picture perfect gallery in Inverness, Cape Breton. Enjoy the sculpture garden, set against the Cape Breton coast line, and then peruse Doug’s gallery where he shares his paintings on oil canvas and linens.

I’m not sure if those are ufo’s up in the sky or clouds. Either way I completely fell in love with the sky tonight ???
