The Venetian App

Wow - just downloaded The Venetian by Nick Bantock and it lifts his intrigue and mischief up to a new height. It's a great electronic read and the art-work, as always, is so richly done. For me, as a miniaturist, all I can say is WOW! - can't wait for his next workshop with us next year at El Molino
All for the price of a cup of coffee - say no more!

Off to Spain next week so we'll be in touch from there

Love to all

Storks Flying Club

Hi again

Just before we left to come back to Canada we went with friends to the town of Osuna - away from Antequera and on the road to Sevilla. A really beautiful little gem of a town.

We had a wonderful sight on the bell tower of a church that day where there was a storks nest, and two storks, presumably mum and dad, were jumping up and down and flapping their wings, as if they were on a trampoline, showing their young 'uns how to fly. It must have been hard work not to take off as they waved their enormous wings, but a wonderful sight nonetheless.

Enjoy the summer

Love to all

Lari and Mike
