Relax, blow some bubbles - and paint!

This is a painting I made to go in my new reflexology room here in Fife.

I wanted the colours to say calm, the bottles to spell out the message of "relax".

The bubbles were painted to remind the viewer of a time when they knew no worries. How many of us have blown bubbles? I have and had a whale of a time blowing, then chasing them before they popped!

The bubbles include some small paintings showing what I do to relax.
Being at a loch, being by the beach, gardening, reading, painting and of course, reflexology! 
Have I included your favourite way of relaxing?

Relax





For the painters amongst my viewers, the paper is Saunders Waterford, the type is 140lb rough, and the size is a quarter sheet. The paints are Winsor & Newton artist quality.

  10. A terrific idea for a painting in a reflexology room Pat. You made it cheery and appealing. Who doesn't have a bubble blowing memory? :) Thank you Pat for your visit to my blog. I used to love exploring England's coastal areas via Google Maps and get ideas for paintings. It would be lovely to go there in person and see them as they really are. So many beautiful places and i love the names. Pittenweem was one of my favourites. It is funny how life works though as you say. I am doing the thing i love the most and that is paint which i never thought would happen. The only thing missing is the sea and an income! :) Hope you are doing well and enjoying your new location. Thanks for your visit

    1. Hi Ross. We went to another fishing village with working harbour - and when I saw the houses on the front, I thought of you, I did! Ross would love this, I thought. Dysart if you want to google it. Hopefully, the income will come. It most certainly should with your gorgeous art!

  11. Hello Pat. Thank you for thinking of me at Dysart! I am honoured and touched! I shall go to Google and have a wee visit in Dysart as i always am looking for more inspiration. I have to tell you my Grandfather immigrated to Canada, late 1800's. He was from around the Chester area. I still have family near there. My Grandmother was from Port Sunlight! I'm 3rd generation Canadian but it is interesting that i still feel so connected to England. :) Thanks again Pat. Hope your day is splendid indeed.
