Snape Marshes.

I recently did a 1 day watercolour class down in Suffolk with a lovely lady called Katherine and thoroughily enjoyed myself. Katherine has a studio in a converted barn in her garden and we spent the whole day in there just painting to our hearts content. This is my very first atempt at a water colour. Looking through her pile of pictures to copy I found a postcard of Snape Marshes in Suffolk which were just down the road from where we were so I thought it quite apropriate to try and paint. (The God parents just might recognise the scene!!)
The finished picture is quite big 13"x18" and is draped over the radiator in my craft pod at the moment until I decide what to do with it!!


And this is the real Mcoy.

Mrs. A., it's been awhile for me - I've been traveling and will be again shortly. But congratulations first of all to you and Doc on your Ruby anniversary - how delightful; so many years! I wish you both many more together! Look at the fantastic things you've made; that ProMarker holder for Bernie, is it? WOW! You're so amazing! And Monkey has a friend, Norm - how lovely. Tell him to be careful of sunburn. Heehee Oh and what a lovely painting. You're so darn talented, Mrs. A. - it's simply marvelous to see the gorgeous creations from you. I just love it! You fill my day with beautiful treasures to enjoy whenever I stop by and it is a blessing!

Thank you for leaving a lovely comment on my blog, the comment reminds me of the poem.....

UP the airy mountain,
Down the rushy glen,
We daren't go a-hunting
For fear of little men;
Wee folk, good folk,
Trooping all together;
Green jacket, red cap,
And white owl's feather!

Jan :o)
