As it should be when you come to London, of course it rained. The first three nights we stayed in Islington, where this scene was enhanced by the reflections on the wet pavement. Sometimes we artists do love rain, don't we?

I want to be in the scene even in the rain! You make it look like the place to be!

Great job w/ the sidewalk and reflections.

Thank you, Lisa. Maybe because for me it was!

Hi Liza,

We artists have a hard time not seeing what's beautiful about the planet. Isn't that one of our strengths? This is another gorgeous painting.

Yes, you're right. That is definitely one of our strenghths and something to be thankful for!
Thank you, Barbara.
