Morning guys!!
Well, I am back but I feel like I am still on a boat! It is funny when you've been sailing for a bit, the 'floaty' feeling stays with you when you are on land. I had a fantastic time and the weather was good as well. Only one massive shower and one day a little less nice, but overall we had sunshine and heat. The wind was ok, on friday it was completely gone. But that did not matter, because when there was no wind, we just went ashore in whichever lovely Dutch harbour town we were and enjoyed some sightseeing. But most of the time we spend sailing the huge IJsselmeer (middle of Holland) either working hard pulling sails and practicing 'tacking' or whatever, or lazing on deck, or enjoying the views of other boats passing by.
Have not got many photos yet, as they are still in my camera, waiting to be developed. Two tasters:



Lighthouse of Marken against a threatening sky.

(it is hard to photograph your own boat while you're on it )

What are you all up to today??

Hiya Sophie ...so good to see you back, lovely pics too, will we see some new paintings soon.........Craig come and see Sophie's clouds.... they are awesome....Sophie I can't keep my balance on terra firma these day.... how ever did you manage to take that one?.......it's a brilliant perspective.....


Hi Rural and welcome to the forum.....hope to see more of you here and of course your paintings, if you have anything to share please do, just open up a new thread and upload your pic, if you need any help, just shout and you'll have loads of willing members to assist you...or if you prefer drop me a PM any time.

Well I've just stepped out of the shower, it's a brilliant sunshiny day here, so once my hair is dry I'm going for a walk over the foreshore and if the tide is in...then Sophie no doubt the local yachting club will be out in force... so shall think of you while I watch their skills........then I shall have a working day painting again...

Have a great day everyone, and lots of fun with whatever you are doing.

Good morning all!

Sophie, that lighthouse is beautiful and the color of your sail is too! Would love to see your boat with the sail out.

I'm working today, counting pills. Gotta go get dressed and take the dogs for a walk first.

Have a fun day!

I'm glad to see you had a good trip, Sophie...wonderful photo there!
Welcome, Rural!
I am still recovering from my second outdoor show, which was yesterday in drizzle and clouds! At least the EZ-Up worked well. Keep me and my paintings dry. Sold more cards this time! Lots of wonderful positive feedback from lovely tourists who probably didn't even have their wallets with them! But I had a much better attitude and was not even depressed afterwards! I guess I will have to figure out how else to sell stuff!
Still foggy and dreary here in Maine but I'm glad to be here. Afer days of not really being able to paint outside I have finally given up and am starting a new painting from a photo I have. That somehow seems sinful to be doing while I am in Maine for the summer but the weather is too fickle to get hung up on such a notion.
YOu all have a good day....and paint some good stuff!

Sandy

It's too hot to draw today here, so I'm taking the day off. (had a busy wknd, two pencil drawings, two small paintings, a still life overhaul, two pastels ))

We have something unique goin down in Philly today as Manchester United and FC Barcelona are in town to play an exhibition tonight at our new football stadium. Still trying to get tickets, hoping to incite a riot

Nice pics soap. My brother's roomate has been hounding me for a pastel of a lighthouse (he's a junkie about those things LOL) and I have tons of pictures, just haven't sat down to do one.

Cheers!
- Greg

Oh Yes Sue.. blood gobsmacking...that step looks loads better, looks like a step now, this is awesome......

Well I've taken one long break today,...it's been a tragic day here....last night there were police helicopters outside my room with their searchlights all ablaze searching the foreshore, then again this morning...... then I bumped into one of my neighbours.. Alan.... we walk our dogs at the same time most days....... his wife has gone missing......she hasn't been seen since 10.a.m. Saturday morning.... the last time I saw her was on Friday afternoon at the local supermarket... this is so tragic...... he's convinced she has topped herself as she has just undergone treatment for breast cancer, but they had removed the cancer without taking her breast away and she had all the radio therapy treatment... now it was just the chemo once a month to ensure it didn't come back....... she had had just one session of that and was fine afterwards, but did not want to go back for more, her nerves were in a terrible state, she was being treated for depression too.... no one has seen her since 10.a.m. Sat morning, she's just vanished....I've just left Alan this very minute, his son is with him now,....sorry folks, hope you don't mind me letting this out...Oh I hope they find her safe and well.
