Sometimes when I'm painting I'll toss down my brush, gather up the necessaries and off I go....
Here; to San Simeon Cove, where the eucalyptus grow right down to the shore
And whale bones wash up onto the sand , ancient wrapped in seaweed and shells
A few lovely Moorish buildings sulk over the scene, supposedly full of treasure.
Almost March! That means spring, and sheep and the first vegetables.
I will leave you with this beautiful Radish specimen.

The above is Rabbit's house, where the favorite topic of conversation is food and then gardening.
Friends have been invited for the first soiree of the year, and still rabbit is gathering herbs from his garden behind the house, can you see him?
A gardener's work is never done..........
All donkey's know this.
listing Friday and right now am saying fare thee well and heading back to the paint pots!xxx
PS I wanted to tell you painters about this fabulous palette I learned about from www.lynnehoppe.blogspot.com
Its a very light and easy to hold one, with a sponge lining and keeps the acrylic paint fresh and the perfect consistency. I also wet one of their palette papers and stick it in the back to mix paint I'll use a lot of, that red is from Sennilier and its called Quindicaone burnt orange, but its got a lot of red and mixes well. I've got the larger version of the palatte too, when I'm doing a big canvas. This little one is perfect for smaller works.
Dick Blick is where I ordered this one.
Happy Valentines day!xx
