I loved this image of a young women standing in an alcove just off the street. I imagined that she was waiting. For what or whom, I will never know. But we have all done it many times. Maybe not as patiently as she appears to be.
What fun. A live puppet show. And a perfect setting – Parc Guell in Barcelona. I loved the interplay between the Marionette and her Marionettist and of course, the colours. Makes you think, which role would you rather play. Or does it really not matter.
Sunsets are the crowning glory of a beautiful day. Mother nature has a lot of colours in her palette.
Try it. Gather a handful of flower petals and toss them in the air. Look up to the sky and watch them float to the ground. How is your day going now?
Skipping down a street dappled with the patterns that the morning light is making on the pavement. And you just know – today is going to be the best day!!
The first day we were in Marrakesh we found our way to where the wool is dyed. As you approach the area, you see reams of different coloured wool hanging to dry on lines hung across the narrow streets of the souk. There were men felting the wool, winding it on to spools and lots of colourful shawls and wraps for sale. In the dark corner we found an opening where a man was dying the wool in large vats. It did not look like a pleasant work environment. I have a great deal more appreciation for the vibrant colours in the shawl I bought that day. It was certainly tempting to buy more.
A lovely couple in Todos Santos saw my 3 paintings that Rumi Garden Restaurant purchased just over a year ago. They particularly liked the one that Rumi Garden had commissioned. So when they couldn’t persuade the owner to sell it to them, they commissioned me to do a painting with a similar color palette. The result was La Puerta. It was unveiled last night to their close friends during a lovely cocktail party in their home. My first unveiling was quite an honour.
