Jane, These are beautiful sketches. I am always amazed at the sensibility that architects develop as artists. I did art school first, then architecture school-- Interesting combination.

You are doing very interesting work architecturally as well. I hope the economy is better for you in Italy than it is here. I have LOTS of time to paint this year.

Thanks for commenting on my 'jazz' painting, I see you like the 'plan view' paintings!!

I did not realise what it is before I read the comment. For me it looked like three ladies dancing along the flowered fence... Human's eye is such a clone :-)) Thank you for the comments so much.
