Today I will share with you my paintings inspired by Rome, or at least by my photographs of Rome. Centuries apart, Rome Piazza del Popolo, Rome The pines of Rome Colours of Rome What … More Europe: from balcony, bus window and roadside
Just a few Mondays ago I wished I was still in paid work. Really? Well, only for the early morning conversations. “What did you do on the weekend?” I had had the BEST weekend, so probably better that I didn’t go in to work that Monday. (Murdered with Paper Cuts by Jealousy in the Photocopying … More Inside Sheffield
They won’t bother with you. Even a little bit of bothering would have helped at 11.45pm a couple of Saturdays ago. It had been quite a day. The first delayed-departure announcement from the cockpit sent a shiver of ‘oh no’ through my fellow traveller. I was more optimistic. The airline knew we were hoping to … More Off to Rome? Don’t bother with Gallienus Chain

It was a hot morning and nearby was an old kombi van with three young fellows generally making some order out of their travellers’ morning mayhem. As I set … More Away from home
Travel photographs from the Loire Valley. This is a ‘short’ holiday this weekend as I gear up for another weekend of Open Studio! It can’t hurt to reminisce and share some pics from a lovely trip to visit Adelaide friends domiciled in France in 2010. A long way from the sea, just for a change. … More Time out in France
More film of Kangaroo Island, one of the world’s special places. shhh! it’s a secret.
A long way from home on a farm with lots of rain, some sheep, kangaroos and a brother (not necessarily in that order) might sound a bit bleak. I am milking it a bit. It’s not all bad! See Kangaroo Island country comfort (below). But late on Thursday night before the power failed I had … More The ABC of blogging (Award)!
Escape to an island gives the impression that you’ve left all your worries behind. I hear that people fly virtually direct from NYC to Kangaroo Island for a few days of absolute peace in the wilderness. Life certainly looks worry-free at the luxury resort nestled into the rocky escarpment on the south coast. The journey there … More Kangaroo Island – an artist’s paradise
Set in a large national park near Otterlo, the Kroller-Muller Museum and Sculpture Garden is well worth a visit. That sounds a bit tame. There is SO much top-notch art to see! The charming M. Jacques (by Oswald Wenckebach) near the entrance gate is a well-loved figure but more treasures await. The approach to the … More Aah, the Kroller-Muller!
