Slice of Life- La Dolce Vita

Still unpacking - laundry, postcards, gifts, and memories.
Scott and I returned this week from 8 beautiful days and nights in Italy. Picture perfect weather, art inspiration- and overwhelm, food, wine and history. It's all there.  We hit many of the hot spots- The Vatican, Colosseum, Pantheon in Rome, the Uffizi, Palazza Vecchio, and more in Florence, and the Duomo and the Pinacoteca Ambrosiana in Milan.
We stayed in two fabulous apartments that we found through
VRBO. This is from our roof top terrace apartment on Via Montevecchio in Rome.
and we walked, and walked and walked. We spoke to people, went in shops and just enjoyed La Dolce Vita (the sweet life). I did some journaling and sketching and took lots of pictures.

Still taking the whole experience in...
The great thing about renting apartments when you travel is you can
take advantage of the wonderful markets with fresh food. Here is some homemade
pasta, pesto, and peppers we picked up and cooked at home.

Smile and say.... Gelato!

or Divine intervention?

Landenberg Today, a community magazine here in Chester County, PA arrived in my mailbox today-with my painting and me on the cover!

The timing couldn't be more perfect.

Today, May 2, 2014, 6-9 pm is the opening reception for my Koi Pond Series at Mala Galleria in Kennett Square, PA.

And while I certainly didn't orchestrate that wonderful serendipity, I am truly grateful.

Added bonus, is that Bruce, owner of Aquatic Services also just arrived to get the pump for the waterfall in my pond up and running for the season. That will make my koi- and me very happy. Flowing water, creativity, joy and community.

Come on out to First Friday Art Stroll Kennett Square and see what inspires me- and you.
