My first trip to Europe

15 years ago I travelled to Europe and the United Kingdom for the first time, taking with me my old Pentax SLR and about 35 rolls of film – colour and black and white. It was my first foray overseas alone and it was both scary and exciting, Europe had been a dream for me since I was in high school and studying art. The photographs I took still give me joy and bring back happy memories.

Enjoying a local snack in Volendam, The Netherlands

      Thank you. I’m currently working on two paintings (neither of them include dogs) and it is taking me a while to get them finished 🙂

        Good luck even if the paintings don’t include dogs :).
