Bobby as Venetian Doge

After spending the past eight years in Venice, I've been encouraged to share my images and experiences with others. For that reason, I now give illustrated talks on my life there. They have been well received by Probus clubs, The Scottish Rural Institute, Italian Societies and others. Obviously they have been curtailed due to Corona, but hope they will start up again.

My talk is not about churches, history and museums - I leave that to others. My talks show what it is like to actually live in La Serenissima - the differing seasons and how everyday life unfolds.

The little portrait is of my cat, Bobby, dressed as a Venetian Doge. Commissions of your cat accepted!
