    I really like the textures of the walls and the atmosphere around them ...

    Me gusta mucho las texturas de los muros y la atmósfera que los rodea...

    This is wonderful Pat - the way you have integrated the colours makes me wish I could look over your shoulder while you are painting.
    June.

    Oh God of homeless things, look down
    And try to ease the way
    Of all the little weary paws
    That walk the world
    today.

    This is both a geographic and time travelling, dear June! What a marvellous outcome! It reminds some central-southern village of post war Italian comedies and neo-realistic movies with Vittorio De Sica, Gina Lollobrigida, Marcello Mastroianni etc. were acting. Good old times ...
    Your painting is a little masterpiece where You captired perfectly the light of a bright day on this ancient looking village. Several artists here produced paintings and lythographiies with the many mountain, hill and sea village who kept their picturesque views along a couple of centuries or more and there's still a market for the disappearing best of them (especially the ones no more with us, such as Enotrio or Aldo Riso).
