what to get???
Nice one, Les. Enjoy it
I doubt you'd get a painting for the money. Treat yourself to a trip out & rummage through the galleries for a print
There are plenty of framed photos to choose from e.g. here
I wouldn't buy a painting...
But that's because my grandad was an artist and I have over 20 of his paintings hanging on my walls. Six of them are Lake District scenes, and one of those was done on request from me. There's no room for any more!
Next time you're in the Lake District, spend time browsing round the shops and galleries. There's bound to be something that will appeal, and at the right price, if only because competition is so intense.
My pal Cathrine does some rather nice outdoor-related ceramics, clicky for her site. Rather than a framed picture, if you have a place you really like she can do hanging maps, which you'll see examples of in the "wall pieces" section. The bigger maps would be rather over-budget but perhaps worth getting in touch to see what she can do for what you have. (the Ulva & Gometra map graces our dining room).
If you like the idea of a picture, have a look at the felt prints here:
Focus on Felt
The originals are way expensive, but the prints are in budget and really nice. And the Dales is of course much prettier than the Lakes

Ontario is a vast adventure playground just waiting to be explored and experienced
