PAGES FROM MY SKETCH BOOK NFS
I used two pages (you can see the fold line of the book in the middle) to do this sketch from my visit to Norway.
Two years ago, we went out of England on a cruise to Norway on the Thomson Cruise Lines. It was just wonderful! I took loads of reference photos and this sketch is from one. It is a grass-roofed boat house on a fjord. The fjords are amazing; in fact the whole country is absolutely beautiful! I have ideas for many paintings from there---just so little time!
Today I started a large painting, and will show you tomorrow what I am up to! Keep looking!
By the way, I have had over 1700 hits on my blog from all over the world. Thank all of you for your interest.
Painting is my passion and I try to paint as much as possible everyday. I love gardening and decorating my home, but when it is hot like it is here in summer, I find my studio is where I want to be! I have also been writing a book about my experiences in the antique shop business. Writing a book is a lot of hard work, what with editing and trying to get one's ideas down in a concise and interesting manner, not to mention the frustrations of using the computer!! I've almost completed it, though. I love so many creative things, including quilting! There just is not enough hours in the day.
