Genadendal Locals

So long since the last blog ... time just seems to run away.
Just thought I'd break the ice and post this painting of two Genadendal locals chatting on a (broken) bench.  I also did a separate little painting of the older fellow.
And then let's see how I go keeping this up again.

Welcome back Liz and my sentiments exactly, that you won't stay away so long again! This painting is exquisite and I hope you sell lots at your exhibitions!

Art with Liz said...

Thank you Hilda, Tweedles and Maree. I really will try and stay in touch via blogger, but I sometimes feel swamped by all the internet noise around me! I still haven't learnt to use Facebook properly, Twitter I don't touch, and now there's Pintrest. And soooo many people want to connect with me via Linkdin! I would rather be painting.

You don't post often but I still had catching up to do! ! Love those bell jars, brilliantly painted. Your portraits are amazing, you do capture the essence of character, which is what it is all about!

Bonjour chère amie,

Je me réjouis d'apprendre que vous allez séjourner en France l'an prochain. J'espère que nous aurons alors l'occasion de nous rencontrer. Ce serait vraiment formidable.

L'oeuvre que vous nous dévoilez est remplie de quiétude.
J'aime le beau travail dans les plis des vêtements... Vos couleurs sont très harmonieuses.

Gros bisous ♡

Thanks for your encouragement Liz! I need some to keep going sometimes. I've recently joined a local art collective hoping to create some synergy.

I stop in on your blog from time to time and it's good to see you again. It sounded like you were very busy which is good!

Hope all is well on your side of the world.
Hugs
ELizabeth

There's a beautiful snapshot of the ordinary that seems extraordinary. A tender and touching work.
