Finally back to painting

It seems like forever since I have picked up a brush.

I haven’t been in the mood even to pick up a pencil.

I feel like I have fallen off the wagon.

Artist Leslie Saeta has once again decided to host a painting challenge in January on her own blog. For all of you artists, this is a great opportunity to get your art noticed and share your talent with the world.

First of all, I have decided to do a month of sharing artists’ artwork on my blog, and I have been busy writing features this month. I am getting closer to the end, so I may have a few  slots still open, if any of you artists are interested, or if you know of any artists that may be interested as well.  (Check out my post “Artists: Opportunity is Knocking, Are You Home?”)

Tonight I have been drawing and painting a few little paintings. My time is limited so I must do all I can in my “spare” time.

Thanks for dropping by 🙂

Hi Everyone,

Today we are continuing up the West coast of Wales. I can’t believe we are on Day 15 of the painting challenge.

I have to say, I am getting exhausted. All of this tour-guide business to keep you entertained, PLUS a painting every day….

WHEW!!! After today, we are half-way through the tour! YAY! 🙂

We are stopping at a beautiful place today, it is called:

DEVIL’S BRIDGE (Pontarfynach in WELSH…Meaning- “The bridge on the Mynach”)

September 30 Day Painting Challenge – Day 13

Hi Everyone!….

SAY WHAT?!!!

Welcome to the City of St. Davids.  

Croeso i Dyddewi.

Actually, you would not believe St. Davids is a city at all. It is a really small town. I remember reading it had a population of 1,797.  Yes… a small town, I know villages bigger than that. BUT apparently, cathedrals made a city. And because St. Davids has a cathedral, it was considered a city. YOU CAN READ MORE ABOUT THAT HERE.

My hubby and I LOVE St. Davids! We came here a few years ago to camp at CAERFAI BAY CARAVAN AND TENT PARK.   In the morning when you wake up, and open the zipper of the tent, this is the view! Now do you know why we love to visit St Davids? Sometimes you look out and you cant tell where the sky ends and the sea begins, because certain times of the day, they look the same color.

You can learn about St Davids Cathedral Here:  http://www.stdavidscathedral.org.uk/

For my painting today, I attempted paint the St. David stained glass window in St. Davids cathedral.

I MAY use my painting as a study for a larger one, it was fun to do!

I just can’t believe that I am still using watercolors … what’s SHOCKING is they are turning out OK 🙂  (hopefully the rest will turn out OK)

This is a photo of the window in St Davids cathedral:

Tomorrow, we head into the Preseli Mountains.

Thank you for visiting, see you tomorrow for a bit of mountain climbing 🙂
