Thank you Kate. I am considering making a small series of paintings. I have a few more drawings too and I think I should take the challenge.

Thank you Debbie. I had written this before a few days as well but now I see it was never published. The mysterious things of blogger! :-)

It's so interesting to see you continually exploring new ideas, Annamaria. I admire your creative spirit.

Now can we talk about the food?

Thank you Kathleen, but I am afraid I can't talk about the food, I am eating too much, it's all too delicious!
