Colors Everywhere


Just playing around with an imaginary Tuscan landscape the other day -- doodling in the sketchbook after watching the travel channel. Funny how even the light can be a different color in different parts of the world. And as cliche as it may sound, this is one of those places I'd love to go some day.

Sorry to have been away for a bit -- have had some technical difficulties with the laptop screen and couldn't SEE to come visit you all. But, as of tonight(!) I'm running the laptop hooked to an external monitor -- a brand new 19" hp flat screen monitor that makes everything beautiful. Just BEAUTIFUL.

Depending on how the repairs go, I'll be back up fully mobile next week some time and DH will get the new monitor. Maybe. I may just have to keep it. (Really -- it's just BEAUTIFUL.)

I MISSED YOU!! I understand about laptop problems. I love this little sketch of yours-the colors are gorgeous and the freedom overall is so refreshing.

I've always wondered what happened when the monitor acted up on a laptop! Now I know!

Glad you are back...

One of my favorite movies is Enchanted April. Don't know if it was filmed in Tuscany but that's my image of it. And this lovely. Especially like the text.
