I did it again; missed one month blog post, and almost missing a second. In my defense, I've been busy with new sights, new views, new experiences to share. So this month's blog you're coming along to some nice places.
My husband and I and a couple of friends just spent about 2 weeks in Croatia, notable for very old stones, the Adriatic sea, steep narrow streets, and some of the nicest people I've ever met.
The centerpiece of the trip was a week on a small ship that wandered along the Dalmation Coast from Split to Dubrovnic, sampling a wonderful variety of islands and intriguing places. Life on the ship was delightful, even when the wind and the sea picked up at the end of the week.
I did lots of sketches trying to capture the spirit and life of Croatia, the combination of mystery, stoic grace, everyday life, charm and beauty. Above a street in Hvar, and in Split, a wash line above a pretty garden and a scene along the esplanade.
We spent the last few days in Dubrovnic, impressive stately bastion with its complete set of medieval walls. By then we were having some serious rain and wind, but it was beautiful nonetheless, and I managed a couple of good drawings between the drops. Above a pretty square in the center, and the grand fountain and church under the walls near the entry gate.
While I'm away from my studio, I especially hope you'll look for them and others at my site at Inprnt.com where you can order fine art quality prints to be shipped directly to you.
