I don't have any Paul drawings yet but hopefully I will be able to create some in the near future....

Here's some of my drawings and paintings that I had posted at the old EZ board Library before it was wiped out....
A tower in Germany

Florence

Little Samuel(the son of a friend of mine)

Rollande--how did I never see these!! Surprised Thank you so much for showing us your art. Very Happy

You are a wonderful artist--those are beautiful pieces! Were the landscapes commissioned, or do you just do them for fun and enjoyment? Do you sell them at all?

Where is the tower in Germany located, btw? I love the one of Florence.

Most of these were done just for fun Teri and I'm planning on doing a few more this year. Unfortunately, I posted them on the old EZ board Library not too long before our big wipe out...
I believe the tower is located in Lars Germany(although I'd have to confirm that with my mechanic). He comissoned this piece from me a few years ago because he wanted to give this piece as a suprise gift for his wife on their 20th anniversary. This is the place were they actually met.....
Romantic isn't it!!!! Very Happy

Ah, Rollande, I can't believe I missed your beautiful works, but as I told you on LJ, I'm blind and a dork. Thank you for posting them here.

Well I may have to commission you to paint the Kurfürstendamm where my parents met in Berlin. Smile
I wish I would've known you did such beautiful work before their fiftieth last year! Confused

Awww Shucks!!
It looks like an interesting place....OK I got curious and I did a bit of research on it....*g*
It's a very popular area in Berlin with various shops, restaurants and hotels lining it's streets. It was almost completely destroyed near the end of the second world war....
I found this little pic of it with some historical background. http://www.planetware.com/picture/berlin/kurfurstendamm-d-brkudam.htm
I can almost image what it must have looked like about 50 years ago.
I found this site which feature a small picture taken a couple of years after the end of the war.

Rollande, your paintings are gorgeous!
I never saw them before either.

Are they in oils?

Are you still painting now?
WOW! Woman, I'm impressed.

Thanks Maddy!!!I haven't painted in a while....I'm hoping to get back into it soon....I had posted them in the original Library but not too long after I'd posted them, they were wiped out by that nasty virus.....

These paintings are all pastels....

Pastels...they are so lovely.
Your paintings have that deep, richness of oils.

I hope you do get back to your painting, because you have a good eye and are very talented.
