If you follow me on Instagram you'll have seen that I regularly walk my friend's Fox Red Labrador (who has the most impossibly short and cutest legs that I have ever seen on a lab) so the first postcard home was addressed to Rory. We were staying on the coast in Wales, and Rory is a HUGE fan of water....
Next on the list was my wonderful Dad. He used to breed budgies when he was a lad, and I now own two beautiful budgies that we are hoping will breed, so it made perfect sense to me to paint my budgies at the seaside for him
I was wondering what to paint next when a seagull flew by. My in-laws live by the sea and love bird watching, so this was for them...
My very dear friend has an elderly black labrador who's beach visiting days are sadly over, he can't walk very far at all these days
What next? We met a very friendly bunch of sheep (yes, I know that they are really a flock, but such friendly animals deserve a friendlier collective noun) so my Aunt got this one
Now feeling in a VERY silly mood, my other aunt loves orchids and is very good at persuading them to flower year after year
And that's my postcard list covered :D
I still had time to spare, so on my facebook page I asked what else I should take to the beach...this suggestion pinged right back to me!
Do you think this counts as proof of posting? Hehehee
And here are all my paintings from our short stay. What fun!
