  • Genoa, North West Italy - more flooding

    A couple of weeks back I reported how devastating floods and mudslides had crippled the area of Cinque Terre in Italy a few days after I visited the towns. Well this morning the area to the north was reported to be suffering even worse problems. Genoa is the largest town in that part of the country and at the moment a large low lying sector is under water after raging flash floods swept through the streets causing incredible destruction. Again a number of people lost their lives.

    The video on the following news page shows just how devastating the situation was and the sheer power of the water. A terrible tragedy which makes you really feel for all those involked.

        I made the first wolf for my grandson’s birthday. I have made 5 more and sold them all! Personally, I hope to never see another kayak again!...

        Update: I just realized I never posted any pictures of the finished fourth ship. I finished it about 6 weeks ago and have since tried a series of different techniques with some other illustrations from the same book. I'll post about that in a different thread. In the meantime, here is the last of my...
