Vernazza, Italy


















Memories of a wonderful holiday in northern Italy last spring.
I'm testing out a new painting method inspired by Janice Ykema's (www.janiceykema.blogspot.com) paint-ink-then wash method. Thanks Janice!

Rejection...







































…turns to surrender, as the Don’s persistent advances toward Donna Candida eventually pay off. However, all is not well in the Recycle Box of Love. The Don’s intentions are not entirely honourable, as the Donna will soon discover. Don Tincano has an unfortunate preference for the large variety pack. Eventually, the inevitable confrontation ensues, with tragic results.
