The entrance to the Biennale

The Bells outside our window woke us up this Sunday morning
-- a beautiful sound
Another day at the show and so much fun. The artists in my area
are very funny, very talented and spend the day joking and
teasing one another in between talking to visitors to the show.
One of the artists I met today is drawing from a model every
day, and let me go and draw from his model. I don't have
the photo of my work, because we came straight here to
the internet cafe from the show.

The Fortezza da Basso where the show is held,
is massive -- a huge building with high serious looking walls

The entranceway to the Biennale today - quite impressive
It's Sunday and we have to go to dinner. More tomorrow.

Have a so-much-going-on-I'm-in-heaven day.

You and Steven will find it difficult to tear yourselves away from this place!
Love to you both,

Oh Barbara, I am so very excited for you! You have no idea! What an experience and I am sorry I didn't get an email to you before you left. Enjoy every second of this amazing adventure. And congratulations, your paintings looked spectacular hanging together!

I can't believe that you are actually producing artwork with all that's going on beside you!
To me you are phenomenal, Barbara!

Hi Marcia,

It will be horrendous, but I miss you and my children, and my friends and my cats and my dog, and Steven says I miss my studio.


Love Barbara

Hi Nicki,

The horrible truth is that I could gladly live here for a year, but I'd definitely need a source of income and that might be a challenge. It is just superb beyond compare.

Bravo to you! I hope you feel better.
