watercolor painting

This is a watercolor painting I painted a few years ago. My friend Peggy went to Italy. Before she left I asked her to send me pictures of things I might like- how well she knows me- she sent this photo of hanging laundry- and I loved it! All her photos came to me from her phone camera. I did take some artistic license as there was an electrical pole on the left that I deleted.

What I loved about this- was the story being told- a couple lives here. You can see two sets of clothes- one a smaller female and the other a larger male. It made me wonder about the couple- who are they? What do they do? How old are they? 

I am LOVING my new craft table. I bought it online from and it arrived in a HUGE box. I had to assemble it. It went together easily and WOW- what a difference- a table that is Strong and flat!! My old table was bowing in the middle and nothing stayed on it- pearls would roll off, as did pencils, exacto knives etc...and I just had to replace the table. I am so happy with the quality of this table- all hardwood- no particle board. There are 2 large drawers where all my everyday tools stay and they are so easy to get to now.  The boxes underneath- those are old books for collage - I collect vintage books and use the pages in my collage- I believe I have enough to last me forever...but then I'll see this amazing children's book and of course I buy never ends...

Hi Elizabeth,
I was blogging around and I found yours-I love the painting, especially all the texture! Also congrats on your new table, I have a few items from HomeDecorators too and they are good quality for the price. I'm going now to check out the rest of your blog.
