Darcy's Postcard Challenge Cuba

This weeks postcard is a watercolour on watercolour paper.

The story continues.

Lavinia is still in Wales on holiday visiting her in laws.

Gil is on a beach in Cuba on his afternoon off from painting another wealthy family introduced to him by one of the family he met in Brazil.
He watercoloured this view for Lavinia, the beach was deserted, he felt a little lonely.
On the back he wrote,

Dear Lavinia,
                   I love your sketch! Thank you! I have framed it in a board frame (no good putting it in a glass one with all the traveling) it will come with me where ever I go so I can think of you each and every time I look at it!
There is only one thing I would like more, that is a photograph of you.
I hope your holiday is restful! I can not wait for you to return home so you can reply to my postcards! I miss your letters!
P.S. I am in Cuba. Another family portrait, (friends of the other family I painted in china). As you can see it is a beautiful place. I am all alone on this beach thinking of you in Wales.

I'd love to swap with him right this moment! :)
Hope Lavinia will be home soon to send him another note!

I'd say poor Gil has fallen head over heals for her. Hopefully she is finished her vacation soon so she can respond to his letters.

Lovely seascape.
