Home is Where you Drop Your Anchor

Home is Where you Drop Your Anchor

The last few days it has been nice enough to work in my garden, one of the other things I love.

The other day my friend Derek Gundy asked the question on his Facebook page, what is your most productive time of day!

I used to be a “Morning Person”, as I have gotten older I feel the need to take my long walk when I first get up, after doing my blog, my Facebook and my Email. Maybe I was more of a a “Morning” person, when you did not have to do so many things before you could start your real day.

What is your most productive part of the day?

Look at Me. I Need Help !

Look at Me.  I Need Help !

I was captivated by this old building in Port Townsend, Washington. The elegant symmetry of the brick juxtaposed to the deck in the back with the mountains and Puget Sound in the background seemed elegantly lonely.

The building calls out that it has been there a long time, has been sadly neglected, yet still maintains an air of its lovely past.

Living the Good Life in Kingston

Walking into Kingston today with best friends from San Diego we passed the trailer that inspired this painting. The photo was taken at 11 PM in December. I was mazed how many people were out and about at that time of night in Kingston in December.

My friend mentioned that she had never visited Seattle when it did not rain. It was warm and sunny until about 30 minutes later, when after a Latte we started our walk home, where we witnessed lightning, heard thunder and were drenched on the way home.

Be careful what you say in Washington….

Wish I could say I sat there and painted this, but someone in my painting group shared the photo and I thought it was lovely. Four of us painted the scene, each with a different result. It is 14 x 16 and available today for $450

Sometimes simple little water color sketches can catch the essence of the day. It is so gray outside in lovely Kingston, Washington I decided a sunny little of sketch of one of my favorite boats might brighten the day.
