WORKDESK WEDNESDAY: Outdoors today...

listening to the birds chirp, sipping green tea with honey (for my sore throat)...

admiring the orchids from the neighbors garden...

enjoying the gentle afternoon sun and soft breeze...

while reading up on 'alla prima' portrait painting techniques from master Sanden.

Well that's what I'm up to this fine Wednesday, head on over to Julia's blog to have a sneak peak at what other creative folk are up to all around the country today with What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday.

  17. The beauty of those orchids must help to drive away the misery from a sore throat, helped, of course, with a good dose of lemon and honey. I do occasionally work outside when we are away in the caravan, but only when there is no wind to blow my papers away, or my threads if I am cross stitching. Thank you for your visit this week, and sorry it has taken me so long to reply and visit you back. have a good week. xx Maggie #7

  18. I think you might have the perfect remedy hope you're feeling better now.

    The orchids are exquisite.
    Thanks for letting me take a peek. Neesie #30
