… to all my English language subscribers! Ever since I started posting sketches and paintings to this blog I have done so in two languages: English and German. Being married to an American and absorbing my knowledge of watercolour painting mainly from English language sources, I felt that including English – even though I live in Germany – was the only way I could be transparent about my process and development. Now that I think about it, I had actually planned to have an English-only website and by and by decided to also do German so that my German family members could understand what I was doing, too…
Well, the website has grown up a bit and I have new plans for it and for my art business, and sadly this means that I will have to stop writing bi-lingual posts. There are a few options as to how I can still keep you updated on my progress if you’re interested; I haven’t really decided which one to pursue yet. So stay tuned! But for now, I want to thank you all wherever you are for following my blog over the past few years. I hope you have seen the odd inspiring sketch here. As a little farewell present – even though I am not going anywhere, but still – here are a bunch of plein air sketches from my summer vacation this year plus more recent exploits at home.
It’s been a wonderful holiday! We returned in mid-August and took up where we left off in terms of daycare, work and home life. Our little man loves his daycarer and the other children and my hubby and I are happily plodding along pursuing our different tasks. This always includes some garden work, too – for him, not for me 🙂
I hope you liked some of these sketches. I will be in touch!
