Thanks to Gunnel for the lovely watercolour of Ancora del Chianti farmhouse with irises and geranium.
Gunnel was here last spring with her family. She has a true passion for flowers, gardening and countryside. She comes to Tuscany as soon as she can and loves to visit us everytime! We keep in touch often as we share passions for art, gardening and …. sewing!!
After the arrival of her card, new ideas arise. I started using my pensils again in a different and more spontaneus way. It is funny: when you live somewhere, you are used to see the same landscape or scenery, no matter how beautiful it is. You may like to paint it (which is way of celebrating in the end) but it is always there and you say: “I will do that tomorrow”. And tomorrow never comes.
After the arrival of Gunnel’s Card, I started to observe the house, the property and the wild flowers we meet at the edge of the road when I go picking up the kids at the school bus in a different way. And the watercolour pensil became alive. You may have surprises in the next weeks….who knows.
The card is now in the breakfast room, welcoming all the guests everymorning.
