@Naughty1 I'm sorry to hear that. My travel plans have all been cancelled for a year and I don't yet see when it will get better. I hope I can get a vaccination soon, I'm on a waiting list - but when that will be realised I don't know. It makes a somewhat chaotic impression here in Germany - at least in my area.
I hope you get through this difficult time well. Take good care of yourself! Greetings from Hamburg, Jens


@Bonzhonzlefonz. Alas, I have travelled widely, but have always sought destinations that were remote. My health now limits my ability to travel.


@Naughty1 Thank you for this beautiful painting. If you ever come to Oslo, you must visit the National Gallery. There are many paintings by the Scandinavian artists that you show here. I also saw some of Peder Mørk Mønsted there.


Yes you are very fortunate. The ocean is four hours from where I live.....


@Isaly2. Paddling in the water is indeed a delightful activity...lucky me!


Thanks for another beautiful painting. I can almost hear the waves coming ashore and can smell the saltwater. I would so love to put my feet in the water.....
