Sunday from my desk
Today we are flying back to Milano over the winter landscapes and my mind goes to one of the old Dutch masters who painted only winter landscapes.
Hendrick Avercamp born in Amersterdam in the XVII century painted so many fairy tale winter scenes with people ice skating on frozen canals as the ones we had just left in Groningen. It has been a week of fairy tales; a feast for the senses .
