"When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy" ~Rumi
 Every now and then something finds you, and it whispers to you about golden sunshine, birdsong and the rich warm smell of earth. 
Paint, it says.

Life in Colour- Madrid

Ferdinand Bauer's Colour notebook, Royal Botanic Gardens Madrid
Ferdinand Bauer's Colour Chart, Royal Botanic Gardens, Madrid
“To move, to breathe, to fly, to float,
To gain all while you give,
To roam the roads of lands remote,
To travel is to live.” 
Hans Christian Anderson

I have just returned from a week of light, colour, laughter, friendship and fabulous art in Madrid.
