Oh my Rob this is an awesome painting. The Amsterdam I remember (just without the cold!) Did you see Rene? And from all the news reports we've been seeing, I'm surprised you found a plane flying there!

we were lucky liz
a few days earlier and we would have had no change...what a drama that was

rene saw me coming and had a little stay in the south of holland...as far away from amsterdam as possible!
