Painting Lisbon

I could spend the rest of my life painting Lisbon and the surrounding countryside, and never run out of subjects.

This view of Lisbon has been on my mind for a long time.  I've been wanting to show the dome of the Pantheon (Yes, we have one too.) rising above some of the old tiled buildings that line the street as it follows the Tagus to the sea.  It's been on my worktable almost as long as it was on my mind, but not until today, while I am laid up with the flu, have I had the opportunity to put the final touches on it.
