About a month now we have been in Northland and in the summer enjoying life in a little country cottage that we have been blessed to be able to stay at. It is an old cottage, that creaks and rocks when you walk across the floor. There are hundreds of sparrows nesting in the eves and in the trees around. The garden is beautiful with several rose bushes in full bloom, smelling wonderful and surrounded by a pretty rock wall. And the views in every direction are beautiful- so much open sky!
I have begun doing some plein air paintings, a few smaller ones and a large one I painted from the kitchen window. Yet to have a photo of the finished painting, but will share that soon.
