Outward Bound

Hope you are having a beautiful weekend.

The magazine interview and photo shoot went really well.  Working with professional artists such as writers and photographers is very special.  I will post the link to the magazine once published. Thank you for all your comments last week, it all helped.

Here at beautiful Indian Rocks Beach, the weather is glorious.  We are headed to the beach and then a trip by boat, outward bound! This beautiful song by Nana Mouskouri will be sung by us

  4. Happy sailing, Helen! Your painting in the photo is turning out beautifully, and what a contrast the sunshine is to all the dampness we're having this summer in Ireland. If you're coming over, pack the light on those leaves for us.

  14. Your paintings are so beautiful. I especially love the self portrait. How wonderful to paint out in the fresh air. I sometimes see artists painting along the coast as I am driving through Laguna Beach.

    Looking forward to seeing the magazine article.

  23. Dear Mademoiselle Poirot
    It is indeed wonderful that we have warm sunshine each day and what is important is finding shade from the hot sun, our umbrellas sometimes take off like a sail when the wind comes up or when two cars swiftly drive by.The challenges!! however, the reward are wonderful and it is so worthwhile.
    Your blog is beautiful and it is my pleasure to visit you.

    So lovely to hear from you. I had begun to worry about you. You just cannot be trusted to get from point A to B without dallying. You probably were totally unaware that we were keeping tabs on you. So happy to hear you are in your Brighton home.

    Thank you for your concern and suggestion on taking time to relax.
    Yes the beach is on the agenda and some reading and naps.

    Wishing you goodness

  38. My dearest Helen, I shall look forward to your magazine post most eargerly. I love the picture of you painting at Indian Rocks. I love Nana Mouskouri's music video. I've always loved her voice. It's pure and crystaline tone that is so pleasant to listen to and her phrasing is fautless. Both the image from the painting and the choice of music video are perfect.

  39. I Love Nana Mouskouri her voice and everything about her, she is like a smooth, rich dark chocolate drink. I could wax lyrical about Nana who has given me so much pleasure over the years.
    So a great many thanks to you Helen :)

    Wishing you a glorious weekend. I always look forward to your blog.
