A breather in spring.

I have been taking a long break. I’m doing things I have been neglecting for some time, I’m enjoying spring and everything that goes along with it. I have been waiting a long time for summer to show up and now that it is here, I have to make every minute count, for it passes quickly. I’m basking in the fruits of the season. I have had an attack of fatigue and I am paying attention to my health. And I’m playing around on Myfrenchkitchen, which I’ve allowed to slip from me over the last few months. I’m stopping by here at Africantapestry just for a quick breather before I continue on my road of indulgence. And pretty soon I’ll be back here with full gusto.

Enjoy the season!

…mangoes for spring…

  1. I love that mango, Ronell. I can feel its warm, sweet flesh in my hand and imagine it dribbling down my arm. Watercolour doesn’t get much more satisifying than this.

    Take it easy and squeeze all the juice you can out of the season – it is far too short, isn’t it.

  2. I was getting a bit worried about you! Glad you’re busy replenishing yourself and enjoying spring. Lovely mangoes, and look forward to seeing what more delights your break will bring.

  3. I’ve missed your regular posts. The beautiful watercolor mango just wets the appetite for more! Enjoy your break. In Chicago we’re still waiting for spring it seems.

  4. Thanks for stopping by to share these luscious mangoes!

    I’m glad you are taking time out to enjoy the spring – it does pass so quickly.

  5. Glad you popped in, we miss you – but you must enjoy the dayd and take care of yourself and we know your sketches will (and do) reflect all of the above!!

  6. Wonderfully washey mangos!!! I’m glad you checked in–I was wondering what you’ve been up to and I missed your fabulous paintings! Looking forward to more.

  7. Hi, Ronell … hope you enjoyed your break. Breaks are good for the soul, but we missed you and happy to have you back. Beautiful watercolor sketch 🙂

  8. I hope you enjoy your break, fully deserved. And I’ll be taking a peak at your FrenchKitchen, I’m acually looking for recipes with a lot of vegetables (the season is coming) and who knows I’ll find something there!

  9. Although today feels like winter at it’s coldest (very strange climate here now), the mangos remind me of summer and the rich juicy syrup of a mango dribbling down my chin. I hopped over to your food blog and gained 5 pounds!!!
