Sweet Pea Bliss

9x9 pastel and watercolor on Uart paper

I am posting two today just because I am so excited to be here. After a full day of travel; flight from DC, rental car drive, ferry ride and more driving , I made it to my little nirvana. I am not exaggerating when I say I have dreamed about this field since I was here last. At five o'clock I finally was able to set up my easel and begin! The goal of this painting was just PURE ENJOYMENT! Work will begin tomorrow.

Looks like paradise, Loriann. Hoping you have a wonderful time. By the way, your new website is superb!

Nice work, Lorianne.
Wish I could link up with you, for I will be in Tacoma but it's still a hike to the San Juan Islands from there. I know it's blissful there, true heaven this time of year!

Hey, Orcas Island - that's my neck of the woods. Let me know if you go by Langley (Whidbey island) and you can see my artwork there, too.

Have fun. And sunny weather, too.

Your enjoyment certainly shows, Loriann - beautiful work! Have a great stay there.

Thanks Janelle. This place is BEAUTIFUL. Thanks also about the new website.

I wish we could link up too...I even thought about it when I saw you blog last...I do understand it's still a LONG way, even if I am on your side of the continent.
You are here in spirit.

I will be sure to go see your work at Langley. Where, exactly, is the gallery? One of my favorite fields is on Whidbey Island and I always paint there.I will go there in about 4 days.

Thanks Brian! It is always invigorating to visit favorite places.

You are ridiculous (in a great way, of course!) that you went out painting after all that travel. You must have been running on fumes.
But WOW! that color! I think I'd never leave that field.

Hi Karen....I am sure you would do the same. The field is amazing...pure magenta love.
