Vancouver Island

This summer, I sketched in the tranquil garden next to the Cuckoo Trattoria in Coombs, BC

On two occasions in the past few years I have visited Paris. Here are my quick sketches in my Venezia Sketchbook.

  1. Hi LInda:
    Talking about surprise, I also have a… wonderful surprise reading my name in… I don`t really know from where but… what shall I say, I don`t see my name around anymore since my first book. My wife is still sleeping and… you know, some people just like to sleep. Well… it is only 6 something “around here”, ja. When she wake up I will show her your note. You have a wonderful day and hope we will met again in Parksville.
    Alberto and Suyi, the sleeping beauty, ja.
