Years ago we paid a visit to Malta.
Coming from South Africa where the rivers are always brown after rain, I could not get over the colour of the water around Malta. Translucent, turquoise, shimmering. Beautiful. On arriving back home I had to get it down on canvas.
‘Mediterranean Mood’ lived with us for many years. I think that I did not actually WANT to part with it. However today it found a new home and the lovely person who bought it is so chuffed with it, that I happily let it go.
One puts so much of yourself into your paintings. You make yourself extremely vulnerable by doing so, until after a time, you can pass off the snide comments and realise that the people who pass those comments usually do not paint, so are not worth listening to.
Now to another topic. I have a website on which I put the odd blog and then I have this one. Can’t understand how that happened. Hence the tardiness in writing on this ‘blog site’ Thank you to the few folk who have decided to join my site, I will try to be more diligent.
In the meanwhile please check out my website for more paintings. Thank you for your interest and participation. My website is: www.lizmcqueensart.com You can subscribe right here. Have fun.
