little pictures

It's been a while!

This summer has been flying by at a remarkable rate. I've done some travelling and have more to do. (Berlin next week to visit Jesse!) Here are some small paintings I made while we were visiting friends in Rotterdam. All I could bring on the plane were the dried watercolor paints which I had prepared in a small travelling palette so I bought some acrylic paints in Rotterdam, but only blue, yellow and white! Then I found some little pieces of wood in the house and painting small still lives of green things...plants and apples.

So happy to see the new pictures, Mary. You definitely have a food and nature theme going this summer.

I like these apples and limes so much.
