Wild Geraniums Drawing and then Off to France!

.
The rains of Spring have given us an abundance of wild geraniums!

An Abundance of Wild Geraniums
pen & ink, colored pencils, in moleksine sketchbook
May, 2012 ~ Utrecht, Netherlands

Our garden is currently a profusion of pinks and purples scattered amongst so many shades of green. It's lovely to look at on the days that the sun decides to shine. This drawing is also in my Flowers, Plants & Trees, etc., moleskine. For now, though, it's the last that I'll be drawing in my garden here in the Netherlands.

Because ... we're about to leave on our Spring/Summer vacation. I've packed up my art case, so the next entries in this particular moleksine will be flowers, plants and trees from France ! :o)

My Travelling Art Case
May, 2012 ~ Utrecht, Netherlands

We're going back to Limoges, where I know for certain there will be plenty of beautiful things to draw and paint. I'm now on my Travels in France Moleskine # 5, which I began last autumn - amazing even myself that I've kept sketching/drawing our vacations.

If the internet connection at the rental house is stable enough, I might post a couple of times from France. If the connection is too shaky, then I'll  post when we return - sometime around the middle/end of June. Yes!!! :o)



Au revoir, tot ziens, 'til we meet again,
Judy
