Happy Birthday Sarah!!

One of the things I love most about blogging is getting to know fellow blogers through their blogs. Several months ago, I came across Muddy Red Shoes, and was immediately entranced by the blog’s author, Sarah Wimperis. I signed up for her daily email, A Little Bit of Brittany, which includes one of Sarah’s paintings or sketches, and it quickly became something that I looked forward to receiving each day.

Starting today, Sarah is embarking on a new series of paintings. She plans to create 100 oil and watercolour paintings in the coming year in five subject areas : Landscapes, People at work, Cafes and Bars, Buildings and Seascapes …a fitting way to start off another year, I think.

If I could, I would pick a big bouquet of Delphiniums for Sarah. Since I can’t send them across the ocean, I’m including a picture of some from my garden. I hope you have a wonderful year, Sarah. Happy birthday!

    beautiful bouquet! i love delphiniums. the house i just moved out of, and am selling, has a bright blue metal roof, and herds of blue delphiniums all round it. this post has made me feel a bit wistful about leaving it. thankfully, there are volunteer delphiniums popping up in some of the flower pots moved from there… they’ll make the new place feel more like home.
