Finale Ligure reflection matted and framed.

The window is from the Youth Hostel in Finale Ligure, Castello Vuillerman, where we stayed in 1999. We’ll never forget climbing the more than three hundred steps with packs on our backs to the Castello where the views of the city were well worth the climb.

The first variation in ink and water-colour repurposed from Studio 365:Day 145

…the journal entry from our visit

  …and the original window reflection.

Anniversary Bouquet matted and framed

With today’s lovely wedding that I am attending and our three family wedding anniversaries all within two weeks of each other this anniversary bouquet from last year was just asking to be matted and framed. Wishing much Happiness and Joy to the happy couple today and a very Happy Anniversary to us all, but especially to the love of my life for Monday❤️

For this week’s Photo Challenge from The Daily Post one of my happiest corners this past week was the corner of my work table in the studio where the real artist in the family, in less than an hour, gave me a lesson in impressionism, abstract expressionism and action painting.
 
      
 
      

Oh, what joy!

With thanks to my daughter for the photo of my beautiful granddaughter and me.
