Welcome to my 100th post!

Watercolor Wednesday started 18 months ago as Kirsten in Copenhagen, a travel blog from a year studying abroad.  Throughout the year I shared my experiences in Copenhagen and Europe.  Now I share paintings from experiences back in the States.   Thank you to those that have been here from the start and I hope you have enjoyed the past 100 posts.

Today I present the first (of hopefully many!) painting commissions of personal homes.  With such a lush garden and golden colors, this home was a joy to paint!

Open Air Museum


Velkommen til Frilandsmuseet!

Today we flashback to my year in Copenhagen, Denmark to the Open Air Museum (Frilandsmuseet).  The Museum is one of the oldest outdoor museums in Europe and is home to over 100 buildings dating from 1650-1950.  The buildings have been reconstructed, brick by brick, to Lyngby, a suburb outside Copenhagen for the public to experience Scandinavia’s rich building history.  The home above is a traditional Danish farmhouse, complete with a thatched roof and white wash exterior.

Thanks to the holiday break I finally had time to paint my cousin her wedding gift.  Lindsay and Erin tied the knot in August, but better late than never, right?

The newlyweds got engaged over a year ago in San Francisco overlooking the Golden Gate.  To remember their special day I painted them this memoir looking at the city by the Bay.

Happy 2013! Wishing you a blessed New Year!

Where Am I?
