I am finally, finally FINALLY (cue maniacal laughter) almost done with my painting of Blodeuwedd, as hard to paint as it is to pronounce!

According to The Internet, it's something like Blo-day-weth. Well, that's Welsh for ya. :P

Be thankful I haven't painted a landscape of...*deep breath*

Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychryrndrobwlllantysiliogogogoch. 

...I think I spelt that correctly. 

And yes. Yes, that's a real place.

*laughs*  I know it is a real place!  It's Youtube's favorite go-to ridiculous name/word.

I'd like to see you make a landscape of *copy-paste* Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychryrndrobwlllantysiliogogogoch.

It's a constant source of pride for me that I can actually say that. 

I've never even been. I'm not even Welsh. But it's such a fantastic word I had to learn how to say it :P

Of course you did!!!  I can't fault you there. ;)

The tricky thing for me is that I admire those who can say it, but I can't be bothered to learn how to say it myself. *shame*

It's very hard to write out a description of how to say it because the ll sound defies all description. 

But there's a song. www.youtube.com/watch?v=1BXKsQ…

And it'll get stuck in your head. :P

To be fair, that was just the longest form of the name, created so they'd have the railway station with the longest name in Britain I think. It's just brilliant. Also very fun to say!
