I just went over the thousand mark! that means I have posted over a 1000 blog post with artwork ,If someone had told me that four years ago , I would of said you are crazy! The challenge has been a wonderful discipline I never thought I could do, I have blogged from every states in New England, Maine, Mass, NH, Connecticut then South Carolina , Maryland , Illinois from France to Canada , on business trip, vacations ,workshops , from the top of a mountain 14 below zero, the cost of Maine sitting on the edge of the water , a hotel in Paris a resort on Hilton head Island , reunions, family gatherings ,my paint goes with me along with my camera and laptop . I have talked about my life my experiences my family ,my pets and the weather and of course my paintings . I have received wonderful comments from my followers who make my day , like this morning from Doloris . Painting is an addiction and I love it!
I painted this little scene today with a bit of a sad note, I just had bough tickets to go to France to visit my family before Christmas , But Tim being sick we had to cancel , We will try for Spring !
A typical town square , my nephew use to have a book store in that town of Jargeau.

We had open house at the studios today , so while I was greeting guests ,I was also painting and demonstrating ,talked to a lot of people, to some it was their first time coming in the building and they where so surprised to see the amount of art in one place , I must say I have not myself found everyone because of the size .
Hopefully my husband will come home from the hospital tomorrow , life should get a bet easier with the trips back and fourth and my poor Clancy missed his dad !
I did managed to finish this watercolor , it is somewhere on Cape Ann , a wonderful art colony outside of Gloucester. email me if you are interested .
