I see there's still some snow on them there mountains Rob! Another lovely plein air painting - I am still taking lottery tickets in an effort to go to your course in Italy!

Diepe zucht! (deep sigh!)
You probably know why, ...

You know Rob, you always say that Wales isn't there for you, but I really think it is! The ease you show whit paintings like this one does speak for the country as well the beauty lays in the simplicity of it all and you show that it is.

Very VERY well done Welshmen
