Rob, in Spain we got a real winter. In this moment Madrid is cover by snow. More snow that I can´t remember. Even the airport was closed yesterday.

Just discovered your blogs and am so impressed. Your work is so appealing and I admire your determination to continue working plein air in a Welsh winter. Puts me to shame ... I live in Cyprus and a little chilly breeze kept me indoors today :0
