Still Living La Vita Dolce

I took photographs of wine in every setting I could: Siena, Florence, Venice, San Fedele....I love painting light and reflections and the wonderful distortions that occur in glass and, especially, in glass with liquids.

Here's a picture of my glass of locally made (and a bit dry and very delicious) white wine in Siena, Italy. We found a fantastic cafe' located along the outer wall of the town where we could eat, drink wine and sketch and paint. The bruschetta that was deliverd to Bonnie and Marcia was so large, it was daunting. The bread covered the entire plate, and it was topped with several inches of fresh tomato, buffalo mozzarella and olive oil. What a way to begin a day.

We spent several hours on this day in Siena; the town was too full of tourists to set up our easels, but we took many photographs and then returned to San Fedele to paint, or swim or just think about what sort of new adventure and experience dinner might bring.....
