This is my first of hopefully many paintings from a trip we recently took to Italy. What a beautiful country with so many inspiring places. I now recognize some of the subject matter for a number of artists whose work I admire. When traveling there, bring your best camera with plenty of memory cards and fill your boots. Sadly I only took about 900 photos. Sounds like a lot, but I wish I'd taken 2000 or more. Just didn't always have the opportunity with all the tours we took etc. Nonetheless, it was a great time and we will go back sometime.
