Mosaic Monday

mosaic-monday



oday is Mosaic Monday, and Mary from Little Red House, is hosting this lovely day.


I love going for drives, sometimes I wander with my camera on my front seat...just in case I find something interesting. Here in New England several States are so close by that you can be in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and cross the border to Maine in just a short while.

My creation




did a bit of window shopping in Haverhill, New Hampshire, and admired the shoe statues in the town center. I stopped for ice cream along the way to Salisbury and saw this biker with his great dog riding alongside.

My creation






hen I was off to Newburyport to admire the sailboats and take in the scenes along the drive to Plum Island. I followed the signs to an Art Underneath The Skies tent ta dah in Salisbury, New Hampshire. Gathering some random shots of interesting things along the way.

My creation






ll in all it was a lovely day driving along underneath a blue sky with puffy white clouds and the lovely New England countryside to admire. The sun roof was open and windows were rolled down. I finished the day sitting by the ocean in Kennebunk with a cup of chawda admiring the New England sunrise.

The song for this post is Weekend In New England. This song brings back memories of a summer romance when I was a young woman living in Manhattan. I never guessed that someday I would be living here.

Your mosaics are wonderful. It must have taken you forever to create them. I like how you added words and little pictures. The road trip looks like it was wonderful. Beautiful scenery.

Karen, everything is so lovely, I cannot pick which one I like best! I like the first set of mosaic where you added some description. Such great talent!

Connie said...

Hi Karen,
I love your first mosaic -- I went for a ride. Beautiful work. Do you use a program or are you just a super talented person ? Your work is so lovely. I can see why you travel with your camera.
I hope I get to see more of your work.

I love New England so much, Karen, and I think the best vacation we've had in years was spent going there, particularly to Kennebunkport, Blue Hill, and Martha's Vineyard. You are blessed to be in that area!

XO,

Sheila :-)

Hello my dear fellow New Englander! Great photos, Karen. How we enjoyed ourselves on our voyages en voiture during our tenure in Boston. We loved Marblehead, Newport Rhode Island and just the entire coastal experience! God bless you my dear artist and friend! Anita

Beverly said...

Karen, these are wonderful images. My favorite is the shot of the mailboxes.

I posted a preview picture of my office redo today. I think you might spot something in the photo that you recognize. ;-)

jeanne said...

Hi Karen, you live in the most beautiful place. I love your mosaic and the tour in your car. The dog and his best friend is my fave too. We have been in Kennybunkport and it is a charming town. I loved the houses. We also stayed in Ogunquit for several days a few years ago. We hope to vacation in Maine next summer for a month. It was fun going on your ride with you.

Hugs...Jeanne.

Dearest Karen!
Thank you for coming to have some Harrod's goodies before the show starts!! I have never been there, but do hope to get to England one day. Your adventure there sounds like a memorable one that you will cherish forever! Thank you always for your encouraging and uplifting comments...they are so appreciated. I have so much fun writing to entertain myself and sharing my "follies" with everyone and anyone that will tolerate my madness!!! Come by on Saturday or after to see the first act! Fondly, Anita

Lori said...

Celestina Marie said...

Hi Karen,
What a wonderful ride. I love seeing the sights you took in and your day sounds simply perfect right down to the chawda. And of course, stopping for ice cream too!!LOL
Love the music.

The watercolor is framed and finished. I am showing it on my post today. Come take a peek how it turned out when you get a moment. It looks amazing in the room. Thank you so very much.

Big hugs, Celestina Marie
