Yes, I know, this could hardly be cosidered a small painting, but as I get nearer and nearer my date of departure for London and my exhibition I am trying to finish the large paintings that I abandoned when I was whizzed off to hospital in June. Not what I had planned at all!
When we were living in Tuscany, my husband had set up Ballooning in Tuscany and our main living was from taking very nice people on hot-air balloon rides. Since I was always following with a jeep and trailer I got to know the roads and country tracks like the back of my hand, so that when I flew, it was always very beautiful for me see the well-known landscape from the air. I would always take a tiny sketchbook up with me, as well as my camera, just in case something really caught my eye that I would like to paint or draw afterwards. It was obviously impossible to take my paints and canvas up with me! 🙂
If any of you out there, would like to come to my London exhibition at the end of October you would be very welcome.
