It's Paint Party Friday!!

Happy Friday!
and I've missed you on Tea Tuesday
as I was attending to a little computer glitch on my computer..
well, the little glitch is now a lot "bigger" and it looks like I'll have to get it down to the service centre..

anyways....

I have a couple more outdoor sketches to share, and here they are...

Happy PPF!!

I stopped by because I have been gone half this week and wanted to catch up on your posts. Yes, missed you for Tea, but love your sketches. My favorite is the view from the Library because it shows where you live.

Of course, I also like the view from your garden because it can show how damaging wind and rain can be.

I love the style of your sketches - they remind of the artist impressions that architects would draw for buildings they've not built yet!

Such beautiful pages! Love your technique.

I love it! How great your scenery. I love your "After the storm" and the colors. Those words remind me of what Rose Kennedy once said when asked how she could go on with all that has happened, and she said, "After a storm, birds sing, why can't we." That was beautiful of her and your work is beautiful too. Take care and have a great weekend.

these are stunning. I love the architectural ones. It reminds me of my mom's work when she was a student (interior designer). I've always loved those

Wow Steph! I am loving each and every one of your sketches and watercolors. They are fantastic! What a gift! Are you still down under? My youngest son talks about going there all the time. I actually have a friend who just moved back there after being in Kuwait about 9 years. Hope all is well, best wishes, Tammy
