Hi everyone. I’m new to this forum, though not to painting. I’m a self taught artist finally finding the time in my “second childhood” now my family has long since passed through their first. LOL
This is a recent watercolour of Newquay Harbour, close to where I live in Cornwall.

Hi Pete and thankyou. You’re only about half an hour away and it’s lovely around that area too.

Welcome, Joy, from the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia! Your painting is beautiful. Your boats are so good and I love the colors. You are so blessed to live in such a beautiful part of the world. Cornwall is a place I hope to visit one day. 😀

What’s up Joy? Welcome to the Patrick’s site! It’s a great resource and you will be a great addition to this little community! I’d have to look up Cornwall. I’ve heard it mentioned a few times here on forums but don’t know nothing about this place.

Welcome! I’m from Connecticut. I visited Cornwall a few years ago and was overwhelmed by the beauty! It was late May/early June and the profusion of wildflowers was amazing. We hiked portions of the Southwest Coastal Path…I’ll never forget it!
Your painting of Newquay Harbour is lovely. We stayed near there and drove by. I hope to go back some day!

Thanak you for such a warm welcome, Lora, Alex and Paula and for your comments. I’m so glad I found this site (thanks for the hard work it must have taken to set it up, Patrick) and I’m looking forward to getting involved with the community and making lots of new friends.

Thanks for the welcome, Annette. I do know how lucky I am to live down here. It’s beautiful and the pace of life is much gentler. I admit, I haven’t been to the capital for more years than I care to remember,
