Or they thumbed their noses at me like these two starts:

Hmm. That's a very interesting exercise. When I finally have time to paint I will give that a whirl to warm up my brushstrokes and get me thinking in color. Enjoy Italy! When I was there Everyone spoke plenty of English and were more than helpful especially if I made the effort to try Italian first. When we were in Rome I wanted to shoot Trevi Fountain early in the morning before the sun was fully up for that soft warm light mixed with cool blue shadows. I dragged Wendy and our friends there between 6:30 and 7:00. It turns out early Monday AM is when they scrub the fountain clean and empty the change tossed in it. So I got some great photos just not what I was expecting to shoot.

Carl! I would love to see what you create with marks and color! Thanks for the tips about Italy...I am sitting here chuckling over the fountain debacle. A memory to be cherished!!!

As I sit here writing, Ludwig, my daughters cat tries to go between the screen and my keyboard. Now sitting patiently on the side. Now he is lying down between the two so at least I can see the screen. I am cat -sitting for my daughter, and sadly one cat wandered off too far and got lost. So now Ludwig follows me like a lost puppy. Isn't it so frustrating when the marks refuse to speak, either to themselves or to me. Talk, tell me something.... nada... Love that little bit of malarkey that snuck in there. Love the freedom and the color palettes. Have a great vacation. Take great photos and sketch a lot!

Ludwig!!! Maybe some paint on those little paws and some canvas to walk upon? Marks have a mind of their own, just like paint. Sometimes they converse and other times they are such snobs! Thank you for your feedback. This piece was great fun and quite an adventure. Photos for sure! Sketching whenever I can...
