  4. Hello Elizabeth

    This brings a big smile to my face. I think Gilbert is singing "Listen do you want to know a secret, do you promise not to tell..oh oh". Did he ever visit Venice Italy? those red and white stripes are awfully like the shirts the gondaliers wear

  29. Ho! Well I like your humour just as much as I admire your skill as an artist. Your humour is subtle - not like mine which is loud and raucous.

    This is a good work, it's simplicity sings to us.

  38. Hi! Thanks so much for all your lovely comments on my blog. I really appreciate them. I love the humour in this sketch. It is so tongue-in-cheek funny. I also really love his serious expression, like he's trying really hard to keep his secret.

    Great drawing!
