Clothes on clotheslines always catch my attention as I have painted several. The idea was first conceived in Venice where the clothes were hanging from picturesque balconies. From there I continued with the painting of Canadian clotheslines and I have used the series to draw attention to energy conservation. Having moved from the country where I had a long, high clothesline to town where I didn't have any clothesline, has made me even more conscious of the need for awareness of this simple way to conserve many kilowatts of electricity.
Here are a few photos of clotheslines am considering for my next clothesline painting. To see some of my watercolour paintings in this series, click here .

|Wonderful arrangement of panties on a clothesline.|
|More underwear and aren't those clothespins colourful.|
|I have the feeling clothes have been hung in this year for decades. Love it but I think I would ignore the scaffolding and truck when painting it.|
|I saw this Canadian flag strung up on a clothesline, in a forest, near where we were camping.|
