SPRING MAY WAIT A WHILE

  1. I like the skull, it makes death look almost ridiculous, something that should be laughed at – what we laugh at doesn’t scare us – a good way to veiw death.
    Thank you for joining the “Travel Tuesday” meme.

  2. I find most people can’t draw snow, or fireworks or rainbows. Photos are definitely hit or miss. I mean I have NO skills in art, but even otherwise skilled folks struggle. So good for you.

  3. I’ve never understood Day of the Dead either! I have a friend who has a mobile phone cover with one of the images on it. It’s quite fashionable round here at the moment to have the images on bags and T-shirts.

  4. I like your non-scary skull, Jesh. Very decorative. The Day of the Dead is a fun rather than gloomy remembrance of those who have died, so the two match well.

    1. it’s not that cold now (after the snow) but it feels like Holland – rain, rain, rain!
      Thank you for adding my link and writing me – I appreciate it!

  5. That’s a beautiful reflection! The snow looks wonderful!
    No snow here but it’s been the coldest, rainiest Orange County winter that I can remember. I’m enjoying it! 🙂

  6. What a lovely photo of you painting the snow! Snow can be quite beautiful but then you get so bored when it is snowing day after day 🙂 Aquilegias are so delicate – in all of their shapes and varieties.

    1. As sophisticated buildings and residences can be in the cities here, the country is quite different (am still perplexed after 5 years moving to the country side – my Dutch family would say, how did they ever get permission to do that??) The story is that they do it here without permission – it depends how strict the building department in that town is, if they will give you a fine or not:) .
      Was reading also your introduction post to Albania and was quite shocked of all that country went through, and under how many governments they were taken advantage of – indescribable:( It took me some time to comprehend it all.

    2. Once we left the Port at Durrës, it was totally different. The cities where there is now work are very different from the countryside. I liked the countryside better, but probably only because I knew I was a visiter. It would be another thing living there.

  9. If you want to make a real snowman we have tons of snow we could ship you; just send a refrigerated truck 😀
    I do love that corner door, it’s one of my favourite types of door.

    1. I send you three of my grands – they came this morning (Friday) thinking they could sled at my house, and were little disappointed seeing all the snow had melted! Am glad you still can joke about snow – I don’t if I could, when it would effect my life that much!

    1. The colors made this door stand out for me, and I love how they jumped out in how the camera captured it. Thank you Dan, what I like is how the image reveals the snowy view from my window:)

  10. I liked seeing you painting another of your lovely pictures. How wonderful to be able to paint so close and yet be warm. Although I enjoy winter, I’m ready for spring this year.

    1. Thank you Janet! I am in the stage of (and don’t know if that is common for artists) having a whole list of things I want/need to paint:):) Maybe some artists have a hard time shutting off their inspiration. This winter is a mixed bag for me – I loved the snow, but I didn’t love it went together with storms and power outages, lol. Oh yeah, I could have done without the cold!

  11. Fabulous photos, Jesh. Your snow painting looks lovely, great opportunity to capture it ‘live’ and not from a photograph. I love the corner door, the entrance looks like it has been made smaller about three times over the years to what it is now. The skull is fab, too.

    1. Thank you Jean! It’s scary how much you know about how an artist thinks! (I recognize it, when clients would tell me, “HOW do you know that? Did someone tell you?”) About the smaller door – I have no idea about its function:)

    1. That’s an interesting observation. I’d guess that the restaurant owner is about as middle class as can be. He’s a good guy, but always straight to the point.

  12. nice to see you working on your snow painting.
    We have only had a few mild winter days with some snow in January. This week temperatures rose untill 18ºC in our garden. it’s crazy!
    Armada of Clouds in your last shot. We’ve had mainly grey or clear blue skies in February. I haven’t seen the middle way of a beautiful cloudy sky this month.
    Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

    1. Thank you Jan.:) Wow, 18 degr. – you are right – crazy – hope it was accompanied by sun! It’s these grey-grey skies in the long Dutch winters that tripped me up. Here, everyone begins to complain when there is a cloud cover for a week. Enjoy your weekend!
