Boat For Sale

When I was more mobile than I am now I went on some Painting Holidays. Most of them were in Cornwall but what better scenery can you get anyway? This picture is of old Newlyn harbour.

Old Warehouses

This was my first attempt with this medium. The picture was in a copy of Leisure Painting.

Racing in Mounts Bay

I thought this bright painting might cheer up a very dull day.

Common Loon

This pencil drawing brings back happy memories for me. After my husband retired we went to Canada to meet up with a family who had been very kind to him whilst he was training with the RAF. One of the daughters lived in Hamilton nr Toronto and they took us out in their day boat on Lake Ontario. We spent the night in a boat-motel on an island in the lake. Seeing this bird and hearing its plaintive cry is something I have never forgotten.
