A Little Time-Out~

I've been spending a lot of time with these......

When I sit at my drawing table I do a lot of daydreaming...

The five beautiful walking villages of the Cinque Terre along the Italian Riviera.

More Information here.

The Cinque Terre is one of the most beautiful places I have visited.
I'm thinking of my first visit to this gorgeous spot when it was early in July, really warm, the water so blue, the bougainvillea so profuse, the wine refreshing and cold.
I will be taking a bit of a blogging break, a 'time-out' to catch up on several painting projects.
Summer here in the northeast is short and between painting, some gardening, my Pilate's classes~ the days feel very short and they are passing too quickly.

It was such a difficult decision because catching up with all of you is such an important part of my day. I really won't be gone all that long, so please check back with me when you can or keep in touch via email.

I will miss you and don't be surprised to see a comment here and there.


Sending Prayers to this very special family.
