Hi from California!


A lovely painting of a lovely day by Desirée Habicht
Isn’t this a great picture? Desirée’s card shows two wonderful ladies (probably watercolour painters) enjoying a perfect summer day at Glen Ivy Hot Springs. Unlike the dauntingly elegant, high-maintenance layabouts usually seen in spa advertisements, these ladies obviously deserved this iced-tea-drinking drift around the pool preceded by mud baths, massages and sauna… and Desirée accurately guessed that this might be my kind of place!

Hasn't this card got a great sense of fun about it - a bit like its artist I feel. And a beautiful portrayal of water - those blues!

I totally agree - the fun shines out from this :>) I like the simplicity of those sun loungers silhouetted in the background too

It's wonderful to see paintings with people in as well. They always liven up a scene - even when laid back and sipping drinks in the middle of a swimming pool! Well done Desiree.

I think there are more of us who can say this is our kind of place! Lovely Desiree..you captured a true summer spirit and now I'm looking outside at the rain with longing eyes...

Lovely brain vacation Desiree. Wonderful painting of a very Califronia day.

Desiree said...
