Bright and happy street scenes! Love all the little birdhouses-no wonder you had to paint it. And the buildings are great!! You are really seeing the 'everyday' life there.

The inn looks charming, Ronell and is lovely in your detail. Bird houses and boats - wonderful variety. I do envy your lovely loose touch.

These are fabulous!! I especially like the Hotel -- It looks as though you are aclimated to the heat OR you are just ignoring it and getting out and seeing the sights anyway.

I love the bright colours you've used, and the little details. That Inn must have taken some observing with all that detail - it's very well done.
