My blogging will be sporadic during this next week or two. My daughter is getting married on Friday and there's lots going on including having my other daughter and 2.5 year old grand daughter visiting. She's a bundle of energy but very placid generally. I forget the energy levels of small children and how many things I still need to move out of harm's way!
Her rapt attention was more for getting her hands on my camera than me this morning, which she took then spent ages going around pretending to photo everyone. The cat wants a vacation for two weeks I think and views the child with horror even though she doesn't harass him at all.
However, I did get a little sketch in today of a painting I am planning. This is a suspension bridge over a river to the sea at La Manche, an abandoned settlement on the southern shore. Nothing could have enticed me to get on that bridge, but the view was spectacular around it and into the clear waters below. It may become part of the series that I'm working on, but I haven't decided what part it would fit yet. Its the point where sweet water from the river mixes with the salt water of the Atlantic.
