Here comes the sun...

I forgot my drawing tablet in Spain.
My artwork came to a standstill until I remembered that with Picasa I can play about with photos then open them with Painter and add bits and bobs. Like a warm sun to a cool Barcelona day!

Is that you and Mrs. Cream? The cool weather didn't seem to make your spirits sour...your smiles are a good indication of a pleasant day.

OOh I like this!
What are you leaning against? Are you at Parc Guell? Up on the roof of La Pedrera? I like the mystery of all those shapes and blobs behind you.

Enjoying all the pics and stories of your trip!

Caro, as we were in Spain, we said "Queso!"

Thanks, Viking. Picasa is really good!

WW, yes it was up Guell Park on the way up to the roof! A panorama of Barcelona behind us in the original. Glad you like it!

That pic. of you and Mrs. Cream looks very hip 'n' cool.

I was wondering what happened to your drawings! And now you say you 'left' your drawing tablet in Spain.

Shows how creative you are, that you can find other ways...

Gigi, I took the tablet to Spain because I thought I'd have time to draw but we had such a good time, I left behind the settee! The perfect excuse to get the one I really wanted!

Thanks Trac, it was only a quick way out,really! No talent required!

KGee, it was cool even though it was very sunny!

Wendy, you're such a smoothie! Thanks! Picasa seems to work wonders for cheesy photos!
