A Break in the Action...

I had been traveling until the 11th of April. It has been difficult to get back into the art groove - particularly since I had A LOT of unpacking and laundry! Where did I go?

We visited our daughter, who is studying abroad. This is the castle she has been living in since January 20th. Classes are also held here and in the barn...
The tulips were just starting to bloom, although the other bulb flowers were in full bloom. Where did we go? If the tulips did not give it away, perhaps the photo below will help:


We spent a week in the Netherlands. It was wonderful to explore the country side (we rented a car) and, especially to see our daughter! The one museum we visited did not allow photos, unfortunately. It was the Van Gogh Museum with the added bonus of a Picasso exhibit. It was so interesting to see the progression of Van Gogh's art - from young beginner to mentally ill end stages. The colors and brush worked changed dramatically. I wish I could have taken some photos of a few pieces - it was fascinating!
