The Da Vinci Code

This time at Dragon's Dream TIO the film theme continues with the Da Vinci Code

Oh Dear! I am loathe to say that I am not a Da Vinci fan especially as I am in the presence of someone who is so enthusiastic. After going to the Louvre in Paris many years ago and almost missing the Mona Lisa as it is a lot smaller than I imagined, I have since become even more disenchanted. I read the book-I saw the film and both left me wondering why? The best thing about the film was the Lincoln cathedral and how it had been 'made-up' for the film. I have been there many times and it is a nice place to visit.

I haven't any stamps of Da Vinci at all but I did have a topper sent to me years ago in a topper swap--I keep everything lol. Pleased I found something as I do enjoy the challenges here.



My favourite artist is David Hockney who lives just around the corner from me. I went to see his big trees painting(s) a few weeks ago and could have stayed looking at it for days. It is good that we all have different tastes and art continues to grow in many directions.
