New Studio Pics

Hi Everyone, Thought I would post some pics of my new studio - finally finished. I really love my new studio but miss my beautiful window and view of the Oresund in Copenhagen. Oh well, I can always paint out on my deck in the summer months. Now I will be now working on my new 100 x 120 cm painting. It will be a combination of my "An Itlian Summer's End and Beach Colours painting". My sister has comissioned me to do this painting for her new home. She wants a beach theme in her living room.



A few pics of some of my funky florals all hanging together. I have approached a couple of galleries here in Ottawa to have them displayed so they will soon be leaving. It is always sad to see your paintings leave.

A few pics of our backyard, finally getting it finished. My husband was busy sanding the deck all weekend and I was painting some teak oil on the garden furniture. We just need some warmer weather now so I can take a dip in the pool.

Hi Kim!!! Thanks so much mate. I am always happy to see your lovely face and read your comments. You have always been so positive and supportive of me and my work. I have not been blogging too much or surfing my daily blogs. I had my father and brother here helpipng out with some work on the house. We are also painting the deck now. Geez, so much work with a new house. But at least the studio is done now. It was so great to paint the other day. I thought I would be rusty..LOL. I am so happy to hear that you are enjoying the paintings. Your portraits just always take my breath away and everyone's that come for a visit. Its good to be back home. Big hugs and kisses to you too...Lisa

What beautiful florals. So bright and vivid. I love the hydrangea, white tulips and pansies most. They look so fantastic all hung up one that wall, seems a shame to break them off. Great work.
