I was lucky enough to take a trip to Italy this summer, where I found one interesting/lovely image after another. I came home with 1000+ photos to work from in paints. In searching for a subject matter, I was looking for something that would work as a vertical painting to put in the rotation of images that will eventually rotate through my Home Page once my website is up and running.
The photo I chose to work from was one of those unexpected moments you can capture because you just happen to be there at the right time.
What I saw in this photo was an opportunity to have a lot of fun with creating texture, the texture of a medieval city, along with this small window of modern, yet foreign to me, life--the group of nuns.
I have opened this blog to comments, so if you tried before, you should now be able to post a comment by simple clicking on "comment" and typing in the letters you see at that point.
