Wandering Outside in Europe...

I was taking a VIRTUAL walk around the lake with Madelief last week and decided to paint one of her photos... after saying goodbye to Madelief... I had south to sketch a street in my favorite city... Paris...


and then even further south to Lyon, France...

I will be painting these sketches once I find a little time... and I will share them with YOU! Right now I have to get back to painting dogs... on the beach...
and SURPRISE dogs in certain places for certain people...

ooooh what JOY to get a CUSTOM painting just for YOU of a loved one!!!

Okkkk... while I paint why don't YOU visit all the other Outdoor Wednesday participants via A Southern Dreamer ... and pop over and say hello to Madelief and see the FAB photos she takes... I think I will be stealing this one to paint next...

Hi Fifi,

First thing I spotted this morning when I opened my blog was your windmill. It looks beautiful! You captured it very well!!! Thank you so much for the sweet words too. I like your style of painting. It looks so cheerful, with the simple lines and bold colours! I enjoy painting as well. If it comes to colours my way of painting resembles your style a little. I like to paint with bright colours as well. Unfortunately because of my job and the fact that I like so many other things too (like going places, cooking and photography) I don't spend much time painting anymore. I look forward to seeing your next painting of the piano :)

Enjoy your day! Lieve groet, Madelief

Hi, Fifi, those dog paintings look wonderful as do the others. Maybe at some point, I will have a new furbaby for you to paint.

Happy Outdoor Wed!

XO,

Oh, it is so nice after being away for several months to see your paintings and sketches.

The windmill is beautiful, but I'm all about dogs on beaches! Actually, I love dogs anywhere, any time.

Nice to be back FiFi, I missed your fabulous blog!

The dog painting is adorable. The black against the blue sky. Striking! I'm getting the itch for another pet...
