Sarah welcome back. Hope you had a relaxing break. Thanks for the tips.
C&Cs always welcome
interesting trip but not very relaxing..main reason for going on it was to sail on the oldest working paddle steamer in the world. My 'voyage' was a lifelong ambition and lasted two hours!. Fantastic.!!!

Sarah it is great that you were able to have a dream come true. The web states that Norway has the oldest paddle boat. Is that the boat you were on. Sounds like a beautiful trip.
the paddle steamer I sailed on was The Waverley..the last passenger carrying seagoing paddle steamer in the world.. Glasgow, .the Clyde.Scotland.
Its fate hangs in the balance so I think I may have been very lucky to fulfil my dream.
PS Waverley Wikipedia will give you its history
Very Cool Sarah!!! Sounds like you had a good time and a dream come true.
Hey, a Shout Out: Sarah fulfilled a dream what is yours???
My life long dream is to run a marathon - have done 2 half-marathons so far - and to climb at least one of Colorado's beautiful 14'ers. with sketch book in hand.
Fred, this is a very different palette for you, but beautiful nonetheless. And the theme is excellent ... Makes the viewer stop and think.
Comments and critiques are welcomed and appreciated.
Fred, the Polar bear protecting her cub is really sweet.
Sarah I will have to read about the Waverley. My husband is of Scottish ancestry and would love to take a trip there in the future.
Sheila 2 half-marathons is a great accomplishment.
Hello Sheila.......just one more dream and that is planned for next year on my 80th Birthday.
I have given up climbing mountains...just sit draw/paint them from afar now and running to catch the 'bus into town was all that I achieved when younger....so even a half marathon would be out of the question so well done you.
This is a drawing I did while on my forced layoff. I didn't have any reference photos for the challenge since they were in my computer. Came across this fellow and thought I would give it a try. It is charcoal and cont'e crayon on Strathmore pastel paper. Aprox.10 x12. It maybe a Christmas present for my daughter who collects chicken stuff. I call it THE WHITE ***.
I guess I was censored. Evidently c o c k is too sensitive to use on this forum even if it is used in it's correct meaning
C and C always welcomed
Very nice Geri, I thought I'd do a little pastel practice today 6x8
You are always busy Fred. I wish I could get motivated like that. Where are the bears today??
Geri, very nice picture of the white ****. His tail feathers are, I'm sure, his pride and joy. Very lavish!
Fred, there is an aura of mystery about this pastel ... What appear to be openings or cave entrances in the rocks make the viewer wonder.
Hi all, Makes me wonder too Alex cause I don't know what will show up until I paint it but anyhow Back on Mercury Bennie and Ruthie are greeted by the chief Merck called Speed, because Crescent is no longer with them to provide transportation he offers them winged helmets to use for their explorations 11x14 watercolor
Fred, what a fertile imagination you have. I love that you've combined interstellar technology with mythical winged helmets. A very interesting palette here, and I wonder if those are rock crystal flowers scattered about ...
