5 years of blogging...



Vandaag bestaat mijn blog 5 jaar. 
En hoewel ik nog niet helemaal beter ben van een hardnekkige zomergriep, heb ik alleen maar goed nieuws te melden.

Allereerst, mijn lathyrus schilderij is verkocht. De afbeelding is gebruikt voor een rouwkaart en zij wilden het originele schilderij kopen. Leuk, hè?
Ook had ik een opdracht voor een horoscoop voor een pasgeboren meisje. Ik had dat al jaren niet meer gedaan, en ik vond het heerlijk om mijn kennis op dat gebied weer op te frissen.
En niet in de laatste plaats, mijn luidruchtige buurman is verhuisd, yeah! Nu hoop ik dat mijn broodnodige rust, en mijn zin in schilderen, snel weer zullen terugkeren. 
Geniet ondertussen van mijn 'verdwijnende' peren. 

~~~~~~~

Today is my 5 year blog anniversary.
And although I am still recovering from a nasty summer flu, I have only good news to share.

First of all, my lathyrus painting has been sold. The image was used for a mourning card and they wanted to buy the original painting. How is that?
I also had a commission for a horoscope for a new born baby girl. I had not done that for years, and I enjoyed brushing up my knowledge in that area.
And last but not least, my noisy neighbour has moved, yeah! Now I hope my much needed peace of mind, and my joy in painting, will return soon. 
In the meantime, enjoy my 'disappearing' pears!

Hoi Judy:) Da's lang geleden he? Ik wou je even feliciteren met je 5 jarig jubileum. Mooi dat die vervelende buurman nou eindelijk weg is. Geniet van de rust. Groetjes en een fijn weekeinde.

Congratulations and Happy Blogaversary Judy.

Sorry you have suffered from a summer flu, they are always the worst, but hopefully fully behind you now.

I'm not at all surprised that your painting of the sweet peas sold...it really is lovely, as are all your paintings - you are a very skilled watercolorist.

Happy Anniversary Judy! Five years already?! Where has the time gone? Wishing you another wonderful year of painting and blogging. (hope you are feeling better)

Rita Vaselli said...

Dear Judy, in your five years of blogging, almost four we walk together.
It was nice to meet you and your art world, of painting and life.
It has' been nice share experiences and changes.
Congratulations for your art fine work, for your loving presence in blogland, for the friendly support that encouraged me to continue blogging, four years ago, after a start that I did not know what to believe ...
Your "pears" watercolors have a glamorous humor that I love very much.
Warm hugs, Rita.
