Up-North is my creative place. It's easier for me to write, to paint, to do just about anything. This summer has been no exception. Someone told me when I posted the photo of the house from Martha's Vineyard, I should show a little more of my art. Be careful what you ask for!
As you might guess, Lizzie is one of my favorite subjects!
Some work out better than others.
Below is my friend Kate's cat Zeke. Earlier I showed you this one... it has a wonky eye. This was my re-do. And it's still not right. I'll be doing this one again.
This pink poppy was from a photo I took in Giverny.
This summer butterfly was from a photo taken last summer. I confess, the sunflower isn't the best.
Last year I did a birthday card for Rick similar to this one, which is for a friend who lives and cycles in Colorado.
Birds? Sure! Gotta love the chickadee!
As I've been remembering Paris for the Paris in July series, I thought I'd do one of the view from my friend Jerry's old apartment. (We both still wish he lived there!)
And finally, another Paris shot -- the cafe where Rick and I enjoyed a delightful meal out in Paris. I'm not totally happy with this one... but it does have the feel.
Oops. I need to put in the name of the cafe! Ah well, c'est la vie!
