And it's taken all of these three weeks for the jet lag to wear off and to start sleeping normally!!! I have just started my first painting from the trip...........a house in the Tuscan hills with poppies and will upload it as soon as it's finished. I must say, although the holiday to Europe was great, we visited five countries in all, it's great to be home our bed and shower especially! It's winter here, which is strange because when we left, at the end of

Well, I'm on holiday............for the past six weeks we've been traveling in Italy and are now in France. Next week, we're going to England for a few days, then Norway, Spain and back to England again to visit family and friends. We will be away until July 23rd and that will make a total of three months away, and it's most enjoyable. Especially trying out all the new foods and stuff! I will be painting from my trip, but have been doing a few plein air sketches while I've been here.

Sorry about that.......I'm getting ready to go on holiday and am working on a Sydney Harbour Bridge painting in between.
I should be finished this week and will post it.

Then I'm away from mid April till mid June.......collecting reference material in Europe.
So, it'll be a long time before I post another one.

And.........thanks for all the :+fav: s  much appreciated.

We are in fact! It all started when I realized most DA members can't change usernames and that I, as a brand new member, had very few contacts to lose.

It's unusual for such a technically talented artist to send a message for every like and subscribe, but I did appreciate the personal touch.
