My Watercolors of Sicilian Places

I haven't posted any of my watercolors in a long time so I thought I'd take this opportunity, since it is almost time to end this chapter, to do so. Following are just a few of the paintings I have done over the last six months. I'd love to know what you think of them. (urban sketches)

Fantastic !!!!!!
Rosemary I would be honorable and really happy if I could insert your watercolors and some photos of Bob in the "GuestAlbum" of my site rentinitaly.net this way the visitors will see the outskirtses of Ragusa as your eyes have seen them.
Ci vediamo stasera per cena.

Absolutely beautiful!!! After seeing some of the pictures you have posted and now being able to view your watercolors, you have truley captured the beauty of Ragusa. Your paintings are wonderful and I'm sure you will always cherish them once you are back in the states. Hope all is well otherwise and please tell Mr Connelly, I mean "Bob", that it will take me awhile to get used to calling him Bob. I was telling my mom about the comment he made and she laughed at me because she thinks the reason why I have troubles refering to him as Bob is because he was my teacher. She probably is right, but I will do my best.

I hope to see more of your paintings in the future as they show what talent you have and sometimes I feel paintings capture more than photos do.

Beautiful watercolors Rosemary! Just had a moment while Nathan naps to skim through your blog - what a wonderful journal and postcard for us all! Sounds like such a fun adventure, I'm glad you are able to live it and share it with us.

Hope you are feeling better (twisted ankles are no fun!) We miss you and wish you all the best-
