Shadow Dance

Every now and then, one has a favourite painting which replaces the previous favourite painting!

This one was taken from a pic posted on Dana Marie's Inspiration all Around Us blog - she really takes the most amazing photographs and I would encourage everyone to have a look!

There was something so peaceful about this photo and the colours were so appealing.  Hope you like it.



Have a fabulous 2010 everyone!  Winter Olympics in Canada, FIFA World Cup in South Africa - should be a funfilled year!

Great job, Liz! I love especially the shadows of the outside foliage playing on the blinds. Just wonderful choice of colors to display that effect so beautifully. The contrasting brown just highlights the shadow play. Gorgeous and yes, peaceful, piece!

Very beautifully zen-like, these calm patterns and colours - a really lovely painting Liz.
2010 will be action all the way in SA (let's hope the cricket improves too) - hope yours is full of good things - Happy new year!

Hi Karie-Ann, thank you. That back ground did take quite a while - more than is usual for me. How's Cyril doing?

Hi Marie, I've just come back from a couple of days in Velddrif which totally reminded me of you! Piketberg 60kms away! Great way to spend the New Year - have a good one!


Thank you Sishir and may you too have a wonderful 2010.

Hello Sam - saw lots of cows on my trip up the West Coast and was so reminded of you! Thank you for the comment and a great year ahead for you too.


Gosh Werner, Danke für Ihren Besuch und Ihre Wünsche. My German is not all that good, but I did understand most of it. Das ganzes Beste für 2010.
