You live there? Where do you vacation....my town??? I like it a lot Jane, I often prefer work that looks "unfinished," especially by people who could finish it if they wanted to. (big difference!) There's a green house next to a small bridge adjacent the Santa Maria della Salute -I want to live in: "my house!" lat=45.4301774703, lon=12.3343454461

Figure out how I'm going to swing that, and I'll owe a gelato!!

i liked what happened with the sky and st pauls section ..lost it a bit after that ..thankyou so much for your words of encouragement.

ciao

Gelato sounds pretty chintzy on second thought. How about lunch at Florian? I refuse to be ripped off at Harry's Bar again.
That section is the superlative of the painting for me!

jane minter ha detto...
