Looking forward, looking back

From my Florence Notebook

Today I've been having a wonderful time working on a painting for an upcoming show I'm grateful to my friend Georgia Fullerton's daughter, India, for posing for me. The painting is not ready to be show.  So I was looking through notebooks to find something I could share, and found this pretty sketch from my notebook I bought in Florence the first time I showed in the Florence Biennale in 2009.

It was a lovely discovery, and I wrote about our time there in some detail. After dinner tonight I was reading to Steven about the wonderful dinners we had -- some in the Trattoria Giovanni, and other restaurants in that beautiful city.

Wishing you a happy weekend.

Have a loving your life day.
