|Oil on wood 20x20cms|
Earlier this year we had a short break in the North of Italy. We were based in Verona but happily for me Venice was only an hour away by train.
The weather was sunny with blue skies but sooooo cold (compared to Sicily anyway!)
Visiting somewhere like Venice in winter is one way to avoid the crowds although it was still quite busy.
An easy way to see Venice without spending sackfuls of money is to take the vaporetto or water bus. If you make sure you get a seat at the front you get fantastic views. We took one all the way down the Grand Canal... freezing but beautiful!

Some of the paintings I've enjoyed painting this year, I hope you have enjoyed them too.
One of my aims was to paint more in 2016 and I think I managed to do that, although I'm sorry to all my friends and family who have had to put up with me shutting myself off and just doing what I love. Sometimes you just have to.
Happy 2017 to all blog friends, thank you for dropping in ....see you all next year!

We're into winter now and it's getting a bit chilly,. So just to remind us of how warm it was in the summer here's a young boy sitting on a wall looking out over the sea. I think he was actually looking for a fish to catch with his net and he reminded me of my own son when he was that age.
