Hi.

The afternoon was supposed to clear up so around 11 o'clock, a beautiful blue sky with a -3ºC temperature, a real spring day. I go to sketch and no more than 5 minutes after completion, clouds back for the rest of the day !!! That was a lucky one to conclude the month.

Andre.

Wow, André, I haven't looked at the sun in a while. 1944 is finally back?!? It looks impressive, especially in your rendition!
