Grazie, Italia!

If I had to choose but one word to describe the Amalfi Coast, it would have to be "colorful" because that definition speaks to the heart of the region...

where the boats simply
"abound in color":

and every landscape, location and setting is"an intensely striking scene"...

Where the Italian people certainly fit the description of "vigorous, spirited, and dynamic" Where else could you go where the locals spontaneously serenade you with traditional Italian songs, and invite you to join them in dance? 
Oh yes, they did just that. Sigh. 

                                        And the daily sunrises, well... they were "richly picturesque"...

And so I say a heartfelt grazie Italia for so graciously sharing all their splendid color, and a big thank you to Charleston artist Dee Beard Dean, her husband Nick, and Houston artist Judy Elias all of whom organized this grand painting adventure. Happy painting to all my fellow artists below: Sally, Judy, Jackie, Dee, Pat, Shirley, Toska and Ann. And grazie to all of you for joining me on this virtual journey -I hope you found it as uplifting and inspiring as I did.


"If you could only sense how important you are to the lives of those you meet;
 how important you can be to the people you may never even dream of.
There is something of yourself that you leave at every meeting with another person."
