Hi Liza,

This is amazing. Such lovely colour, great sky, perspective and mood.

Hi Liza,
I clicked on to the larger version of this painting and it is so much more satisfying to see in that bigger size. Great brushwork and there is something really pleasing about the sweep of this red roof and wide expanse of sky! More wonderful work from you. Thanks for the apero invite - I'd love to come! Unfortunately we're not likely to be able to head your direction this summer. Will probably be heading to Portugal for a couple of weeks, and I can't wait. All work (at the day job)and no play makes me a very boring and (artistically) frustrated person. Now that vacation season is settling in I can finally shift over to the good stuff... art. Anyway, would love to meet up with you one day. We'll make it happen. In the meantime wishing you all the best and continued fabulous painting! Aliaena

Thank's a lot, Barbara!

Thanks to you too, Aliaena!
I am pleased you clicked onto the larger version because I often think that the small pictures here don't do the paintings justice.
Great to hear that you are off to Portugal soon - I wish you a wonderful, relaxed and inspiring holiday! My two sons just left for Lisbon and Faro last Wednesday - they were hitchhiking and got there in one go! Bon voyage, Aliaena!
