dc: No 161 Spring break

























Today I am back in the Lionpalace
(for me another kind of holiday chalet)




and I paint for this week's drawing challenge a Azulejo
with a pair of azur-winged magpie [Cyanotic cyanus] on it
(pretty, cheeky birds which reminds me on my nearly 14 years-old twins...)

Veronica is our host of this 161st of drawing challenge with her theme Spring break
 - please go to her place for more!






Have a nice day!

  3. Hello beautiful Ariane! These photos take me away. I can smell the trees (kind of musty for some reason in my imagination) and feel the spray mist across my face and walk in the sand and cement sidewalks of the town. Then I cannot but help to grab a paintbrush to capture some of it. Oh so glorious is this feeling that your post has given to me. Thanks! *smiling* Norma, x
    p.s. I still have a little something for you that I haven't mailed yet. Will you email me your snail mail at the Lionpalace?
    p.p.s. The feet on your magpies are marvelous as they clutch the oak branch.

  5. This looks like a gorgeous place to be and enjoy and relax and to paint. Blue and white are delicious. So fun to get your post card. It is pouring rain here and snow is melting, entirely different from your photos.

    what a ton of memories to cherish, i am so happy that you had this fantastic stay away from home for a while, with the family. if there's one action that reloads batteries as such, it has got to be this. and then portugal!
