It’s been a little quiet here lately. These last few weeks we have been enjoying the lovely summer weather. Celebrating summer vacation in the comfort of our own home. We went out on a couple of bicycle trips, and even discovered some beautiful cycle paths we never knew they existed. One of our favorite picnic spots is overlooking a beautiful pond, and why is it that food always tastes better outdoors. 🙂 In a nearby village we have been visiting a very beautiful garden. This garden is often the centre of lots of activities such as theatre, markets, music and dance. This time a market took place and people were selling jewelry, art, clothing, plants and bric-a-brac/antiques. I bought 3 small but lovely earthenware apothecary jars, they are great subject matter for my next paintings. And of course I have also spent lots of time in my atelier and garden. I love to paint a little, walk around in the garden, do some pruning and just enjoy the beauty that surrounds me. Such days make me a very happy person.
