Getting Ready for the Exhibition (starting on Aug.4)

They are all framed, standing piled up, waiting to be taken to the place where we will hang them on the walls in a week.
I just can't stop painting.
My husband wrote a list -- he is very good at keeping things in order --, and you should expect it will be closed at a certain moment, but new items keep growing.
I will put them into a folder that my visitors can look through during the opening; I have to take it home after Saturday because the exhibition will remain unguarded. It will take place in the seminar rooms and corridors of our local culture center. So from now on, I'm painting things that will not hang -- but anyway, our list encloses 55 items. This will keep the visitors busy, I guess. And the primary purpose of this exhibition is to inspire people who come for painting and quilting classes. I do not expect sales, one or another just might happen -- so you see: Commercial reasons were not what made me appoint the event.

 It is getting hot today. Our balcony will become a furnace during the day. In the evening, it will be a nice resting place for my husband and me, when I treat him with tea and ice-cream.

I Owe You Views of Scotland

Loneliness in a vast country, shiny white houses on dark brown
or violet heather meadows -- I really love this landscape
 At last I managed to compose a galery of our Scotland trip -- please click this line.
I rather show our trip to the Isle of Skye and through the Highlands because Edinburgh is already in another galery on my blog since 2011. Please read the explanation below the photos on this poster -- isn't that wonderful? This is where Monty Python took scenes of their "Holy Grail" movie.

Slight rain veiled the bridge over to the Isle, as we were approaching.
Just a few hours later: Portree in the evening sun, reminding me
of a mediterranian scene with the boats and pines and the sea blue as a gem.
