Hi to Amelia - this is for you.
I thought of you when I looked at Celia painting tree trunks across the stream which flows down the mountain slopes.
She exactly fits your description of an eccentric lady with paints and artist's clothing - except that she isn't eccentric (well no more than the whole group of us, is - I guess!)
Now that does look nice :) Thank you dear Hazel, but I suspect that it would be more like long-johns, waterproofs and a woolly hat here. I'd also need a bottom warmer, hand warmer and equipment to keep the water from freezing if I was attempting a water colour. All of which would restrict my movement so much that the painting would be compromised, and you wouldn't be able to see for yourself what a great artist I really am ;-)
Tell Celia she is one lucky woman :)
Wonderful place for painting Hazel !
Best wishes to Amelia :)
Hi Hazel, this is a plesant looking place for painting. I guess you are an artist from what you have said before.
I tend to think of wild animals when I thinking of Africa, obviously none too close to this place? Keep safe.
Best wishes to you, John
Thank you all so much for your kind comments and compliments. So much for "watercolours" where you live Amelia - they would turn out to be "icecolours" instead..!! What a fascinating thought that is.
Yes, Mìne and John, it is a lovely painting spot, just above our Townhouse complex, and as for wild animals, we could hear the local troupe of Chacma Baboons barking not far away, so we hurriedly ate our picnic tea before they could pick up the scent. So you see, there's a wild element even in big City suburbs in this country!! (Cape Town +/- 3 million folk) (-;
