Fortezza da Basso Firenze Italia Decembre 3 - 11 2005


Art is solitary, hidden rewards make up for bad weather and social circumstances prevent days in the field

Italy...Rome, Gavignano and Florence have been powerful and fascinating... discovered grapes here which will be hard to beat anywhere on earth

Constant reminding's of the Roman Empire...and the many painters, who like me, have walked these narrow streets

Villages cut in every hilltop, reaching out for the sun ...fortified cities of stone and white marble, clothed in oils on canvas
