Past times

I just love doing skies! I saw this one in my new Watercolour book and just had to have a go! I have seen skies like this many times and have just gazed and thought how great it would be to paint that sky!

I must dig out some of our old photos of sunsets taken in faraway places like Florida, Western California, North Cornwall and the Greek islands.

Tonight I joined, in haste, another Watercolour class in a different location... cheaper, friendlier and with a Tutor who actually demonstrates and explains techniques! Aren't I a lucky girl?

My lovely man and I used to go to Naples in West Florida and always we would go down to the beach to capture the marvellous and spectacular sunsets when dolphins would swim close to shore and the pier would be full of people watching for shark, tuna as well as the playful dolphins. Oh happy days. I never thought that those days would be so short lived.

So now I paint!

Mrs Hogday and I were talking about Naples pier only yesterday. When the cash fairy comes again we'll all go back.

What a lovely thought! I think my cash fairy has gone on holiday... probably to Naples, Florida!

Great that you've found another art class. Can't wait to see the results here!

I'm starting Tai Chi classes on Friday (a long-standing wish) - hope I have as much fun as you're having - there will NOT be any pics though!

Hi Puddock, is Tai Chi the exercise as seen on the film Calendar Girls? If so, it looks a lot better than the recent celebrity exercise DVDs I've been looking at. It's a pity we don't live closer... I think we could have some good widowhood experiences together. I suppose you're not thinking of moving down to Oxfordshire?

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

Thank you Linda... as long as I can make a few people smile along the way, (cos life is so hard at times)then writing in my blog is worthwhile.
