SUMMER IS COMING

 

 

Surprise – am trying out blog themes and hope I will be done with it soon~

June, the beginning of many vacations and travel

Summer is coming and lots of people will travel, also by plane.  The plane  just arrived. The carts for the baggage appear. When you look at the people in the windows right above the airplane, you see their restlessness while  waiting.
On the left of the nose of the plane a small reflection!

You may not be able to go as far as to China, but this is the roof and eve of one of the old buildings in Beijing, the time China was still a kingdom. The colors are vivid!

Week’s Favorite: Roof in Beijing
Pastel: last

A simple Life Guard door. My second grand trained for the job of  a life guard and got it! (Not in Laguna, because this one is at beach and the ocean)  So proud of her. My now adult kids complained (in their teens) I was “too strict,” but I’m a wuss – chuckling when I hear that my grand immediately was told, “You can’t be out late,  go late to bed, or be tired the day before you work, because people’s lives are depending on you, you have responsibilities now, etc., etc.”

Love the lipstick plant so I bought one after we moved, because this one was getting smaller and smaller. Am happy for two blooms a few weeks ago for the first time, three years after our move. Guess my plant had a culture shock:) My other one is giving flowers for the second time this year:)

      To explain: i normally do three kinds of posts – one : the meme All Seasons,
      – two: my weekly post with all the memes/challenges I participate in – Nature Notes is always in this post. If I don’t specify a specific photo, you may choose one:)
      – three: Not every week: weekend green
      Hope this helps:)
      Hope life is going well for you:)

      Thank you for visiting me! Went to your Fri Hunt’s post. It may take a little longer (in time to practice) but I would prefer a “handmade” pastel. And in pastel there are so many styles.
      Another page on my blog is “Artnotes” and here you can see some of my pastels. Enjoy! https://artnotes2016.wordpress.com/2016/08/08/soft-pastel-nature-and-landscapes/

      1. I just visited the site in the link that you shared. Those are wonderful pastels. I especially love Reflection Trees in Pastel…absolutely beautiful!
        I would love to be able to do handmade artwork. I am practicing with watercolor pencils and trying to get brave enough to post what I created a few weeks ago.
        Thank you for stopping by and commenting. Have a blessed weekend. 🙂

        Thank you, Suzanne! The first times to post something so personal is always nerve wrecking, but you’ll see you will get encouraging comments:) May you already know this, but in case not: pastel is easier, because you do several layers over each other, and it shows the last layer. With watercolor, because it is transparent, you see every “mistake” no matter how many layers you paint on top of it. I circumvent this by going very slow in the beginning…:)
        Be brave:):)

      3. You’re welcome, Jesh, and thank you, too, for the encouragement and tips about pastel. I will have to give that a try. I don’t know anything about painting or that type of artwork, what works best, or even really what tools to use, or how to make sure the picture stays on the paper or canvas. These are all things that I want to learn, though. I want to find something creative that I will be able to continue to do once I am no longer able to photograph things. I have vision problems as well as shaky hands.
        There are definitely plenty of mistakes to see on this watercolor lady that I created. She is the first of my “People of Bath” series. It takes me forever to talk myself into trying to draw/paint them. I see faces everywhere: in the bathroom (hence the name “People of Bath”), in the trees, pretty much everywhere. I want to make a record of the faces that I see and this seems a good way to do it. I just wish I was gifted with the ability to draw like others. My people rarely look at all like what I envisioned or even really like people. 🙂
        Thank you again. Have a blessed weekend.
