“I can’t give you a sure-fire formula for success, but I can give you a formula for failure: Try to please everybody all the time.”
– Herbert Bayard Swope
Isn’t that the truth!
Saundersfoot Cottage – 4″ x 6″ Watercolor & Prismacolor Pen
I painted this from a photo by Lin (Old Rock Chick) at WetCanvas. It’s a cottage that Lin just had to stop and take a photo of to share with her WetCanvas friends. The pretty, seaside town of Saundersfoot, is one of Pembrokeshire’s finest holiday resorts, in the United Kingdom, where Lin lives.
I did have to explain to my dear hubby that there are no brown roofs in Betheville and we will never run out of pink paint.
