Last Weekend With My Family



My family came to me last weekend. They congratulated me on my birthday. The cake turned out to be very tasty, just the way I like it. But so many candles did not fit on the cake. Therefore, we have set and only 7 candles were lit. 

 


The evening was magical, we remembered many funny moments that were decades ago. What a pity that we can not meet with friends until now, as in the old days.
Beautiful white lilies bloom and are fragrant in the house so far.

 


 

I have already shown you my Christmas cards. I told you that I started learning watercolor, I like that one can choose a teacher and practice watercolor while listening to his explanations and advice on the Internet. I enjoy learning to paint landscape, trees, sky and sea. I will show you some of my training watercolors on the Port and Landscape themes.

 




  


 
 

 


 

While there is no work in the garden other than snow removal, I will study watercolors and I hope my works will be more successful.

  1. Congratulations. We also put candles in the birthday cake, but mostly for children. But I could do it too, myself :-)
    You are a very good painter.

    1. Thank you Lisbeth! We say here: "the old one is the same as the little one". The problem is that you need a lot of candles and they do not fit on the cake :-)
      I can't call myself an artist because I'm just learning watercolor.

    1. David, it's better to count age not by candles, but by decades. :-) I think being seven years old is great.
      I am glad that you appreciated my works with this word.
