The Art of Return

It's said you can never go back, and I often find this true, but we've just been back in New Orleans for a week. I was interested to see how I felt...and it was just wonderful. We spent time with great friends, wandered about our old neighbourhood, got lots and lots of hugs and ate marvellous food, listened to superb local musicians and rode the ferry wistfully. Its a crazy place, alternatively you love or loate it but there's no escaping it gets in your blood.
I did some watercolour and charcoal sketches while there...all © Anne Jenkins

The art of an ending.. and a new beginning

The past few weeks have been crazy busy, I've fallen behind in my posts... but I've feverishly been working on the boat project... and today the Parks & Rec came to take them away... first the committee came by and checked them out and approved them (YEAH!) and now my studio feels empty.
Carrying out boat # 1...

sitting side by side en route to their new abode... sorta - they'll be at the launch and then go to their permanent home
next time I see them will be at the launch! it has been a very interesting project, a worthwhile project and a fun project. Certainly can't moan about that...
and now - a new beginning and a new project. Ain't life grand?
