Watercolourist Sketches Jawlensky


Gallery Sketch of a Jawlensky work

Again, at the Albertina in Vienna, I ran across this…well not exactly ,of course, but close to it.  I loved it and thought, someone else loved the big hats long before I did.  Very intrigued and likely will be painting her on canvas with acrylics sometime soon!  Enjoy and keep making art.


Paul Klee Rides Again

This is a marker rendidtion of Paul Klee’s “Riders” viewed up close and personal by me at the Albertina Museum in Vienna.  Those who have followed me since the beginning, or even the last few months, know I love german watercolourist Paul Klee.  Check him out, enjoy and keep making art!

Watercolourist Visits the Albertina


I took a shot of the sign so I wouldn’t think I was only dreaming when I returned back home!

It was a surreal experience to say the least.  First I stayed on the main floor and explored the German artists…I really love the works of German artists…there is something about the colours and mark making that makes me want to see more.  Then I headed upstairs to see some of the works of Picasso and Monet.  No matter how many times you see the work of these artists in a book, seeing them in person is an experience that left me feeling I’d transcended.   I have also included a shot of the choir in Vienna on Canada Day as my computer crashed whilst I was away and I was unable to update my posts with new pictures as I had hoped.  Enjoy, if you are in Vienna you can not miss the Albertina nor the palace (or it’s cafe as it had great desserts, see below,!!),. Keep looking at and making art!!

Oh Canada!! What a day!


Best dessert of the trip!!!



Watercolourist Visits Vienna Day 2


Walked and painted all over Vienna today.  Saw the Hofburg Palace and the Figarohaus (where Mozart lived when he composed Marriage of Figaro).  Absolutely magnificent!  Visited the Vienna State Opera House this afternoon and thoroughtly enjoyed the performance of the Vienna Mozart Orchestra at golden Hall this evening.  I cried, laughed and sighed at the beauty of the music…as if should be!  Keep making music and keep making art!!

Watercolourist Heading to Europe


Yes…I am so excited!!!!!!!!!!!! I am going with my sisters to sing in a choir called the Holy Heart Of Mary Alumni Choir based in St. John’s, Newfoundland. Am hopeful I can sing as have been struggling with my allergies and my voice has not been amused, to say the least.  I’ll be over the Atlantic ocean as you read this (in first class seating !!!!) and getting ready for the first stop on our tour (Munich).  From there we are heading to Italia to the Alta Pusteria International Choir Festival and then onward from there we head to Austria and will be singing at the palace in Vienna on Canada Day.  So my friends, I have done as I have in the past and prepared some scheduled posts to keep up with the post a day commitment but also will be posting as I can on the road.  I am hopeful that I can post as I go after each day’s festivities.  I hope you enjoy the posts!  Have a wonderful June and I’ll be back in July!!  I’m sure to have loads of things to post about for the rest of the summer after this experience (I am so excited about the art galleries too!!!!), in the interim, get ready to make music and keep making art!
