Midsomer Murders

I stared watching reruns of Midsomers Murders
 on Netflix...and the location they were
 investigating was  such a HUGE mansion....
I felt I HAD to sketch it---well just a corner
  of the back  I think...it has so many
 chimneys etc. I can't imagine how long it
would take to see each room...for me maybe all day...

 learning is a good thing I think. Click to see better

Doctor's Island Rememberance

"Doctors Island Approach"
Used my artist's license here
and show you the first stage of
an acrylic work for me, now.
You also see the new acrylic palette
I love .  I was attracted to this place the second
 I saw it and even more  fascinated to know it
once was called Doctor's Island, located
off the Maine and New Hampshire coasts.
Now known as Pierce Island...this really
made me wonder if my Dr. Pierce that delivered me
 back in 1935, was a member of this family.
And here I was by chance, being so drawn to
the place.  He was a very kind and learned
The Lobster painted on the roof I think
I have seen before, but only in a dream.

Palette Assemblage Two Views

I love to make assemblages and especially in palettes...
That vintage glove I love !  The theme here is all about
a walk by a hidden brook on the property... combined with
little tresures

Around the Place

Every once in a while I decide to photo
 some of the things around here that
I'd like to save on Winnas World... 
  each assemblage has a story for me
to remember and I love to do this type of
expressive puttering around. This was this morning
and I liked the way the light was hitting thing
s as the sun had not been out in awhile
......too busy snowing etc. CLICK
