Italy came back to me in the shape of my niece Selene and her husband Gian Luca. We had a warm and wonderful four days together and they took home the portraits I finished last week of Mariam and Emanuele, their children who are in Milan and haven't yet seen these paintings.

I'm guessing these beautiful scenes were capture from your window. It's good to see you are still painting. The last time I used watercolour was in in 1957, as this post relates:

Hi Vincent, the snowscapes are from my window, yes, but not the portraits of my grand-niece and nephew. They live in Italy so I painted them recently from photos. Of course I'm still painting, writing and so forth, that's my life.
I tried going to your site to read your new posts but somehow it doesn't let me in! It seems to be on some different system, unlike the previous one which was easily accessible.
Very best wishes to you and Karleen for 2023. I sent you an emailed greeting did you ge it?
