To the Balcony

To the Balcony by Liza Hirst

A bit overcast and quite chilly this morning, so I decided to paint an interior. I am obviously not as tough as René in Holland or as Carol Marine when she was in Germany! I do admire them!
As you can see, this is an old house - admittedly the balustrade of the staircase looks alarming but believe me, it is perfectly safe and firm!

To the balcony you dreamers of summer.
Great title, and great painting. I am
not worried about your house at all. I love everything about it because of your paintings of it.

Hi Barbara,
yes, we are still dreamers of summer here! The weather is really spoiling us this year - wonderful.
I am enjoying painting these scenes around my house - maybe because I have a feeling it might be my last year here.

this is a masterpiece. I don't mind the balustrade at all.
