Quidi Vidi Village or “The Gut” as it is also called is an “outport” within the city of St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada.  Way back in the 1800’s I had relatives that lived there.   On a recent trip to the island I had the opportunity to take a few photographs of Quidi Vidi.  There was quite a bit of fog the day I was there, which, I think, added to the mystery of the place.  And for the beer drinkers, this brewery makes some incredible beers if you ever have a chance to get there!

It’s been a long time and many things have happened between my last post in June and now, far too much to get into here.  While I have been doing all those other things though, I kept making art, although a little less often and a little slower than usual for me.  Over the coming few days and weeks, I will be posting some of that art, mostly done in markers as they are portable and I was able to take them wherever I happened to be.  I hope you are all well and still blogging your hearts out ( I have been reading, liking!).  I look forward to visiting your blogs a little more regularly and hope that you will come to visit me as well now that you know I have not dropped off the face of the earth (ha!).  This piece is based on a photograph I took while tromping around Cape Spear in my beloved Newfoundland.  As you can see, I have injected some colours that are not actually on this old lighthouse but boy would I have fun painting it pink!!  Enjoy and keep making art!!

Watercolourist is moving again!!!

Hi folks, this is my first blog including text only.  Just wanted to let you know that I am still around and still reading blogs but I am moving at the moment and have been extremely busy with the move and finishing up at work before I go on vacation.  Hopefully, I can start blogging and making art again as soon as possible as I am certainly feeling the fact that I haven’t put brush to paper or canvas for almost a month!!!  Unheard of in the past three years and becoming intolerable!!  I am admiring the art around me daily, from the art I find in the natrual environment to the clothing people wear to all of your fabulous blogs!!  Wish me luck in getting back to the studio (or some semblance of a studio) very soon!   All the best and keep making art!!!  Blog on my friends,  Lorelei x

Driving around Marco Island, Florida, I have been captured by the beauty, and variety, of the palm tree. The Pineapple Palm in particular is one I really love and I found one just down the street from where we are staying. We drove past it twice and it stayed in my mind’s eye. As soon as I arrived back to the house at the end of the day, I drew this! Hope you enjoy and keep making art!
