Grandaughter Ella

This is my darling grandaughter ella. She asked for a portrait of herself this week and when she saw it said "its very nice grandad but I dont think my friends will recognise me from it". How polite can a child be. I have to say the colours are quite garish on the pc compared to the original. However I am quite pleased with it.
She is so special to us.

Music in St Marks Sqr

Its about time I put a watercolours on my blog. I`ve been neglecting them somewhat. Finding new material is my biggest stress each day and I end up searching for insperation to ease the addiction of painting. Inevitably I return to Venice scenes which I enjoy painting, but I wonder if my twee painting is not stretching my boundaries enough. Perhaps I should travel more and experience the world. To many things to do and not enough time in which to do it in.
