I have two main reasons for my absence, one of which is that it's that time of year again when I am working on secret squirrel stuff, so there's a lot going on behind the scenes which I am sworn to secrecy about. The second reason was that Mark and I took a fabulous holiday on the beautiful island of Mauritius. We were both very ready for a break and longed for some sunshine to recharged our batteries and Mauritius certainly ticked all our boxes.
The sunsets were spectacular!!!
We took a trip on a mini submarine which seated about 10 people plus the captain. All I can say is Wow! If you ever get the opportunity to do this, you should, it's one of the best things we have ever done.
Not the best photograph in the world, but it really felt like this fish was laughing at us.
I do love waterfalls and this was one of many that we saw.
Our trip to the botanical gardens was also pretty amazing.
I loved how fabulous our hotel looked at night.
Dinner on the beach at our hotel.
It was such a brilliant holiday and I'm really missing that sunshine right now!
I have spent a little bit of time over the last few weeks be creative. I signed up for the best on line class I have ever taken, with the super talented Laly Mille. I have admired her work for quite some time and when she announced she was going to be offering an on line class, I was first in the queue to sign up. Laly is one of the best teachers I know and am thoroughly enjoyed her style and laid back approach. I know that the class is sold out, but I can highly recommend a visit to her website and sign up for any newsletters so that you get to hear about any future class plans she might have up her sleeve.
I'm not going to share the details of how these canvases were made, that wouldn't be fair to Laly or the other students who paid for the class, but I wanted to share them with you as they were created using photos from our trip to Mauritius.
