Gimmelwald - 8x16

I said I wouldn't paint Gimmelwald (it's too beautiful, I would only make things worse!). But this little section seemed a little less intimidating, so I gave it a go.

Murren - 5x7

We visited Murren one day while we were in Switzerland, a much larger town than Gimmelwald, but similar in it's charm.

We're moving!

Announcements are more fun when presented as haiku's, so here goes:

Time to clean things out! 

Can you help lighten my load? 

Too much art to move!

Boat in Lucerne - 6x6

Can you guess what got me really excited when we were walking around Lucerne one day? Yep, I found boats! In water that was such a different color than the Santa Barbara harbor.  Swiss boats yay!

The Chalet - 5x7

Really enjoying this different landscape.  These Swiss houses were much harder to paint than I anticipated.

Cows and Fog, Gimmelwald Switzerland - 5x7

This heavy fog set in after our morning hike one day in Gimmelwald, Switzerland.  I was all too happy to stay in our quaint little room for a while, waiting for the storm to pass, especially with this view.

Swiss Window IV - 6x6

The last in my little window series.  I was attracted to this window because of those teal shutters, especially next to the red flowers.

Swiss Window - 6x6

I'm really happy with this little painting, so much so that I'm working on a whole series of swiss windows.

Swiss Castle - 5x7

I snagged this shot on the cable car ride down from Mt. Pilatus.  So many places in Switzerland seemed too quaint to be real, and this was one of them.
