March 7 , 2017 Frankfurt, Germany

Enroute to Rome! Stay tuned for word pictures and paintings of Italy. Last August I got up at 4 am when I was staying in River John. Off I drove in my Pajamas to sKnee River John in the dark. This is the resulting unsuccessful watercolour that I did. But now this has sparked an idea for another Starry Night painting. I finished the underpainting the night before we left so it will be good and dry when we return!

February 22, 2017

Jim and I are so lucky to be going off again on another adventure next week. I have my paper and paints all ready and a journal packed. Stay tuned to see the first of the paintings and the word pictures next week! Where are we going? We land in Rome and depart from Paris two months later. Both of these are favourite cities of mine and it will be great to see them again with Jim. In between it will be all new territory for the both of us.
