Resolved tecnichal troubles

harry-the-blogger

Dear followers and friends, due to a technical trouble, the two last posts about:

‘Architecture, furniture and decoration’ and ‘Hats. Beginning with fuchsia’

didn’t allow ‘enlarged size’ of the pictures.

Now this is resolved and you’ll can enjoy each sketch amplified.

In a few minutes I will publish about ‘Dance, performance and theatre’.

Thanks for your patience and loyalty.
Harry, the blogger.
