Postcards from Ronell


Thank you Ronell!

First I got shocked when I took your envelope out of the mailbox. The people at the post office have had so many other places to stick the labels on but they had to do it right in the center of the image.

But luckily the labels could be easily removed. (before scanning I've put them on my address)

And how surprising there was another card inside in company with some delicious and useful things. One part is already gone... the other one has to wait for proper weather...

I suppose your lovely cards represent some scenes of your home town. You must have a brilliant view over the Loire river. I love the way you sketch and use watercolor. Isn't it great to live next to a river? I enjoy sit on the banks of the Neckar or Rhine River which is a bit further away - always looking for a willow tree. Thank you so much!

I'm positively viridian with envy here! These are absolutely gorgeous and thank heavens the labels peeled off ok.

I always love Ronell's watercolors... But I am surprised at the post office pasting stamps on the picture-- what a relief that they came off.

I love Vivien's comment--viridian green WOULD be the color of your envy, Vivien.

Oh Ronell, I always love the way you can create magic with those brushes and a few pen strokes. Beautiful, loose, watery paintings, perfect! I want to know what was in the bag thats gone already?

How lovely - to receive these watercolours so beautifully done. And how lovely to live there Ronell.
And - me too - what was in the bag???

Beautiful watercolours - if I saw these in the postbox from 50 paces I'd know they were Ronell's - such a distinctive style!

Oh, I'm so glad the stickers came off, I would got such a shock seeing those on the front! Abbsolutely beautiful Ronell, and yes, so distinctive!

This is a gem of a painting, Ronell. And I loved Albrecht's story about the drama surrounding its arrival!

Pat said...

I think I can guess too. Ronell these images are so wonderfully you. Your line is active and the colors are vibrant and cheery.

I've had to wait ages to be able to view your card on the big screen, Ronell and it was worth the wait. Gorgeous combination of line and wash. I'm green too - of the river, the postcard and your talent.
