Sandy beach in Aberdyfi / Aberdovey – the print

Sandy beach in Aberdyfi / Aberdovey, Wales, UK by Linandara

A little picturesque village along the beach and on the hillside (nicknamed by kids Balamory), river estuary, white sails and a terrific view. Our favourite beach in the area. The original painting have been done on a warm september day in 2008, during low tide, while kids were busy splashing in shallow warm pools. Quite a lot of beach sand turned out to be incorporated in the picture…
After selling the original picture I played a bit with color to make this print more “impressionist”

A new Gypsy Mermaid pendant…

In gypsy mermaid, jewellery, sea, seaside on March 16, 2010 at 12:30

Alexandra Cook listed a new item on Etsy: This is a part of my Gypsy Mermaid collection, which is all about uncharted seas, empty beaches, pebbles, driftwood, and even mysterious water-polished remnants of long gone civilizations. Something for an “inner mermaid”: original, natural and wild.
I love collecting pebbles and feathers on the beach. This set comes from Mundesley in Norfolk, UK. The thread imitates some exotic seaweed.
The necklace is about 16 inches (40 cm) long, the thread could be made shorter. The weight is about 24 g (3/4 oz).
Will also look great worn on the beach.

Late spring holidays

In crafts, kids, pets and domestic animals, photography, seaside on June 4, 2009 at 12:34

Twins in stereo.
We have been to Norfolk again. The weather was good, I even managed to swim in the North Sea for about 30 seconds… My son had spent about half of hour in the water and was very happy.

We were lucky to had about a week of hot and sunny weather here in Wales.

I’ve done some outdoor sketching and gardening including planting jasmine (which I always wanted to have) and sorting my seeds. I had a very nice American-styled quilted pillow cover which has got too old, so I attached 12 net pockets to it with letters for different months. So I’ll never forget to plant something in time. Also useful for dentists appointment cards, newspaper cuttings about upcoming events, etc.

We also visited Iron Bridge world heritage town, the site of former industrial hell. “The world’s first cast iron bridge was built over the River Severn at Coalbrookdale in 1779″. I thought it would be bigger when I first seen it in the booklets…

Only bad experience was seeing a puppy being run over by a car, which reminded me again how hard is cats and dogs life in towns: either they suffer being locked up or they get killed. Well, I’ve also encountered online a couple people who honestly though that being kind is a waste of effort and time – that’s another bad experience I wish I could forget.

Anyway, I hope to visit my mother and grandmother plus many friends in Russia from mid-July to late August.

Recent art & lots of trouble

In computers, kids, my artworks, photography, seaside, traditions on November 7, 2008 at 14:35

I made yet another beach sketch in Mundesley, Norfolk (I love the place!) when we were on holidays. But that’s about it. I haven’t had a chance to work much on my commissions or in fact any other serious job partly because of school holidays, partly because a strip of bad luck. First, my smartphone broke down and I lost quite a lot of data (look here if you want to avoid my mistake in Windows Outlook: http://www.microsoft.com/communities/newsgroups/en-us/default.aspx?dg=microsoft.public.outlook.contacts&mid=b4b0cc4a-e9ca-437c-a816-55e8a036f5f9 ). Second, my son got ill with a cold or something else. Third we had a pipe leak in the middle of kitchen celling. Plus a gloomy weather & economic situation. Plus my husband radio interview got cancelled. There probably was something else, I can’t remember right now.

Anyway, we had some fun on Firework night:

Here are two more samples of my recent oil pastels. Both A4, resulted from random encounters on the Web. The landscape “Warm Lake” has been sold on Ebay for about 10 quid. The nude is still available from Etsy (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=16271026).
