Yikes!

We have moved.  We are still in Las Vegas, but Jim no longer wanted to do yardwork and the extent of my outdoor work was caring for my potted plants (what my dad calls my pot farm) and roses and feeding my hummingbirds.  Soooooo...  We bought a townhouse.  We've been in it for two weeks.  Jim already loves it and I think I'm going to love it, too.  There are still boxes everywhere, but little by little it's beginning to look like home.

The first thing we did even before we moved in was to paint my art room.  It's a wonderful space.  There is a large window facing north and a smaller window facing south.  The light is fabulous!  We painted it the palest of lavender.

I hope you are all well and happy.  I've been reading blogs and have seen many exciting photos and paintings.  Keep up the wonderful work!  Don't give up on me.  I'll join you soon.

Wow, big change, but sounds like it will work really well. I have a gardener for the outdoors and cleaners every four weeks for the house, but it is still a lot work.

Mary, your house is gorgeous. I loved the photos you posted!

I´m sure you will love the new place as soon as you are settled there properly. And living in a house with a big garden shouldn´t feel like a burdon, if it does it´s time to move. So I´m sure you did the right thing by moving.

Catharina, it's growing on me day by day. I'm heading over to your blog to see what you've been up to.

Marty, thank you. My room does have the best light in the house. I'm so glad to hear from you!

Great news from your little corner of the world. North light? Now a lot of masterpieces are waiting to be painted.

Candy, good luck in your new townhouse. I love that you've already painted your artroom. I look forward to some paintings now.

Hi, Irina! Thank you for the encouraging comment! I'm glad you stopped by. I love your series of birds - especially the most recent painting. The colors are so vibrant!

Candy said...

Hi, Carol! Thank you! I now have a little feel for what you guys went through. The difference is that I moved across town, not across the country:) I'm glad to see that you've become interested in pastels. It's such fun to try something new!
