Saundersfoot Cottage

“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.  😀

About Herbert Bayard Swope

Herbert Bayard Swope, the colorful, hard-driving American journalist who became famous as a war correspondent and editor of The New York World, was the first writer to win a Pulitzer Prize for reporting. He was born in St. Louis in 1882. He coined the phrase “cold war” as a speechwriter for statesman Bernard Baruch. In his leisure time, he was a brilliant gambler at the track, at cards, and at stocks, and threw lavish parties. He died in 1958.

    Wouldn’t be the same without the pink roof. I love it, too!

    Another cool building! I really like how you used a darker maroon on the fence which complements the roof so nicely. It looks much larger than a cottage! And it could be so many interesting things, from a mill to an organic factory of some sort. Perhaps the home of an eccentric hermit! Thank you for the comment on my hat-scape! (Oooh, I just made that up lol.)

    I have seen a very similar quote attributed to Bill Cosby.
