P - Pray, paint, play an instrument.

I do not play an instrument but from time to time I like to paint, actually draw, I love to do things in creyon. Sometime ago I went to a painting class in Bad Homburg and had lots of fun. Below some of my works from then!



Arent you clever, you little artist. I would love to be able to draw.

It seems we are both full of unexpected surprises! How exquisite! I'm sure it is a very soothing way to relax.

I can almost draw stick people (always jealous of people who can really draw)

i adore that first picture of the fruit---it is simple yet elegant and warm

@Luan - well I am not that good, mostly childish! :)
@Sush - yes, you are right, it relaxes a lot!
@Baygirl - well I am also jealous of those who can!
@Lynn - thank you!

@Karen - very kind of you!

They are lovely. I especially like the middle one, reminds me of pictures of an Italian villa.

I have always wanted to paint watercolours. I think it must be so relaxing. I have all the gear, but I just need to have some lessons! Mind you, I've been saying that for the past few years! You are lucky to be able to draw like that. I particularly like the first one - very good.

Well done - I love the first one and the middle one especially. I'd love to be able to draw! LindaK

@Kathy - it is actually after an image I saw in Tuscany!
@Diane - thank you for your kind words, it is very relaxing indeed!
@Linda - glad you enjoyed them!

Fun stuff here Claudia!

@November Rain - thank you!

My mother is an artists, so I grew up drawing and painting. It's a huge part of me. When I'm lost for how else to express myself, I go out sketching.

@Sandra - lucky you, I am sure your work as well as your mother's is great!

I like the first one! The colours are great and I just always like still lives. Well done! Hope you're well and you're having a good week with better weather than we have ;-) xo

Love the middle one. I can't draw or paint to save my life!

I used to play the clarinet and I did take an art class in college. I like the realistic coloring of the fruit.

Visiting from the A to Z Challenge.

Claudia, what beautiful pictures. The middle one of the road with the house in the distant brings all sorts of snippets of stories to mind. Drawing is a talent that I never achieved so I appreciate it so much in others. Thank you for sharing your work with us!

You are quite the artist. Well done!

Being creative is a great outlet! Thanks for sharing! ~ Angela, Whole Foods Living, http://www.wholefoodsliving.blogspot.com/

You have some talent. In fact, your painting looks better than my clarinet playing sounds.


Jilda's good at painting, but my painting is sad. I am fairly handy with a guitar though.

I enjoyed your art work and I can barely draw my name, just for the record. ♥

I really like your drawings, how nice to be able to do that. I play the piano a bit, but absolutely cannot draw. As always love your blog.

@Mlle Poirot - the weather is so la la, not brilliant. And if I would not have tooth aches all would be well :-)
@Paula - sweet of you to consider my attempts as paintings :) I still have some learning to do!
@SGirl - welcome and thanks for the comment!
@Amy - I was happy to do it, it brings me much joy!
@Kathy - oh thank you!
@Thedailywoman - I hope you enjoy the challenge as much as I do :)
@Angela - so true!
@Joyce - I can't play any instruments I'm afraid!
@Rick - I know you are great with a guitar :)
@Jo - thank you!
@Pam - piano, love the sound!

Wish I had the artistic skills to paint or even draw but I don't. I have an eye for photography. About as close as I will ever get!!

Cheers, Jenn

"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
