    1. Thank you SO much Joan for stopping by to comment. Your trip sounds absolutely wonderful and I'm glad you're safely back home. Yes, I think I used the sepia to get the "antique" or older feel of the times...

  15. How time flies, where does it go? When you are young you think that you have so much time and then it's gone in a trice.
    This is such a beautiful painting love the way you have painted it, how precious is that.
