New Painting Idea - Tuscany

Hi Everyone, Well, I needed a new painting to start, and I felt in a slump yesterday..LOL. Andreas says to me, a slump? How can you be in a slump, you just finished the lavender like 2 days ago…LOL. He is so cute.

Anyways, I need to paint! I live for painting..LOL. And I often have many ideas rolling around my head and I felt like taking a break from the florals, but I had no idea what to paint. So I decided on something that I had in my thoughts for a long time now. I have always wanted to paint an Italian Kitchen scene for my future home with all my favourite Italian Ingredients. I love Italian food – particularly from Tuscany and also its beautiful areas and wonderful pottery and colors! I am a real Italy fan as you can tell from my past paintings and ideas. I must have been Italian in my past life.

Anyways. Here is my very rough sketch (from my crazy imagination) for my next painting. Entitled “Tuscany Delights”. It will be a big one – 60 x 80 cm painted landscape. Wondering what you all thought of the idea. I think I am up for lots of work on this baby!

Wishing you all a wonderful day. Well, I am dead beat tired and I have to go work out now. Have to get in shape for the big wedding!

Kisses to you all
Love Lisa

Oh and here is picture of my beautiful flower bouquet my hubby bought me on Monday for our wedding anniversary. And I have to advise you all that we are married 11 years not 12....LOL. I go that wrong the other day! Crazy me!
