Last Painting Day, Wednesday :(














Today we painted along the canal in Haarlem (aar-LEEM) and I've posted what we did. First mine, then Sandy's then Paula's, then Ros'. Now, what you need to know about Ros' is that it's the 2nd one she did at the site - the first one being sold right off her easel - yay Ros!
Tomorrow we fly home, and I'll crop and pretty up the whole shebang of our paintings and post them. Don't even LOOK for this until Friday - I'm fried! But it has been a wonderful experience, and it's a fantastic country, so clean and friendly and just gorgeous. Beautiful people, everyone's so healthy and fit (they ride bicycles all over), and they're so careful about the way they use things - there isn't a lot of trash (Queen's Day excepted).
Thanks for sharing the journey with us on the blog!
:) Kelley

Thanks, guys! The nocturne didn't get painted (en plein air, anyway) because the winds kicked up so much the night we were going to do it we wouldn't have been able to keep the materials from flying around! And I'm used to lots of wind! So we tried, anyway....
And Rob - we loved the dutch folk....
