Happens to the best of us. Don't let it get to you. It's just a slump.

Lynn, browsing books with pictures sometimes give me some idea or inspiration.
Books with no pictures don't work as good. :wink:

:lol: :lol: :lol: Hope so. Still cant decide about the dutch houses in the foreground. They are an integral part of the view, and anybody from Edinburgh would recognise them immediately. But do they work in the painting ??? :roll: We shall see :D :D
