ersi marina's workroom is always open to the public, even when I am not in. Sometimes I need to sleep.
And to paint.
And to play with my four cats.

a simple walk and a techno-dreamer

What? Blogging two days in a row? Well, some miracles do happen.

I have been taking some days off to rest and relax, doing nothing much and enjoying the calm. Yesterday I went for a walk in the late afternoon and I really liked how autumn colours are gradually taking over the countryside.


Some leaves are barely starting to turn yellow, I loved the contrast with the slightly darkening sky.


But the colour palette gets richer at the foot of that tree. Lovely shades of pink, magenta and purple being born from the summer greens.


And some delightful dots of blue...


 ...slightly blurry because I used the macro settings of the camera but wasn't carrying a tripod with me.


Pink and green are not only for the Spring...


Sitting at the feet of a cluster of cypresses growing close together. The sun is setting on the other side.


A young pine tree growing in the shelter of a low cliff.


More pine trees up the cliff. The dark shadow in the middle is cast by the cypresses.

So, who's the techno-dreamer? Oh, I left her at home when I went out for my walk.


I was planning on taking a week off but it is becoming a two-week period of relax. I could well be in the place of Colombina in this picture!

two homes found new homes

I have been feeling the urge to blog for days but when I get down to it my ideas play a dirty trick on me and just vanish down the stairs. I could follow them of course on a search and capture mission but going up and down the stairs is sooo tiring... I can't bother. They'll come back on their own, I think they know darn well that they are my ideas and that they can't live long without me.

So, this is just a short entry to give you some good news. Two of my paper homes have found new homes and they will soon be on their way there.

home number 3


home number 8

One of them will be going to Barcelona and the other, I'm not sure yet. But how great that they found new homes! I'll miss them a lot but fare well, babies.
