Day 40- N. at the cottage

Day 40- N. at the cottage
acrylics on 30 x 36 inches canvas
Yes, not a watercolor but an acrylic painting on canvas. It pushed me to ask myself more questions about how I want to continue with the larger acrylics.

Day 34- Cold feet-

Day 34- Cold feet
9 x 10 inches, watercolor on Arches CP
I am feeling it . The anxiety of this move has hit me. And the boxes. And the
all-over-the-place-things-of-all-sorts that have overtaken our home. I look out the window, and
a perfectly beautiful deer is munching away on what's left of the roses, not minding the rain one bit. I grab my sketchbook, and draw frantically, and ask myself how much money would we really lose if we cancelled those tickets.

Day 33- Light moving swiftly

Day 33- Light moving swiftly
watercolor 7 x 7 inches
Dear friends, this blog has been quiet for the longest time. Much has changed in our lives so far, and much will again soon. I was going to say goodbye, but then I found myself posting another watercolor and writing Day33-  Am I nuts? I hope not, I hope to be able to post more watercolors more frequently, but I will be closing down the etsy shop until September. I am not in much-writing-form these days but I will try to take you with me on some of our travels (in August) via Scotland, and back to Athens, not with photos this time but just paintings.
