Rob, de laatste 3 zijn erg mooi!!

I look regularly at both your blogs,
envious about all those beauty surrounding your home.

Always a treat to see what you've done now. Don't you are a member of Daily's anymore?

I like the gossamer and misty atmosphere you captured. Great sense of depth as well.
A magnificently alluring painting indeed!

hi Rene,yes we are very lucky living here in Mid Wales,the beauty of nature is stunning and the people are friendly and have the time,but then,that is about it
nothing around for hours,not even doctors,if i didn't like nature,i would move back to Amsterdam!!
