Welcome! Hope you see some artwork that pleases you, if not now, maybe next time…

Summer berries.

My August postcard to Charlene – 1150 words was done on walk around Coin Perdu. At the moment the berries are plentiful and the birds are having a ball.

I chose to do the drawing of berries for Charlene on some papyrus. I love old papers, old scripts, old books, old letters …it has a charm that we don’t find anymore in our contemporary life. The papyrus is definitely not easy to write or draw on and I have a renewed respect for the patience and dedication , not forgetting the love someone puts into a beautiful writing. I’m thinking here of my friend Dana…drop by Ginger parasol to see the beautiful cards she designs and writes!

  1. Love your paintings Ronelle! I think early Autumn colours suit you. 🙂

    I’ve been wondering how on earth you got hold of some papyrus…..

  3. Just beautiful. I love the lightness of touch you have and, as I’ve said before, your lyrical lines.

  4. Ronelle! ~ I almost fell over when I saw my name! You are much too kind. Thanks for your kind words. The respect is mutual. You know how much I admire you and your art. Your work just speaks to me like no other ~ so full of energy and your love for life. I, too, think autumn suits you. I can just see how your brush dances across the page.

    So lovely. Your drawings make me appreciate the leaves and remind me of picking berries last month. Yum.

  6. I get so excited when I see your post show up in my emails! I open it immediately. You are so well rounded, do so many things beautifully….a true artist in every sense of the word. Your last two watercolors draw me in….I can see and feel their autumn-ness! Then the more color the happier I am.
    I hope your studio is going very well….it was such a super sized, American sized dream and fulfillment. May many grace your door and walk out with a lovely painting.

    Hope it isn’t too long before you show up in my mailbox again!!!! Smiles:Sharon

  9. I am finally home from my 2 month stay in Venice, and am checking up on what I missed. I love the berries!!! People who get postcards from your walks are so lucky! Painting on papyrus sounds challenging. I wouldn’t even know where to get papyrus! I enjoyed viewing some of your other posts that I missed.
