Alex was best friend to his master for 14 years.  She has so many precious memories of their time together.  He was such a good "snuggler".  When she sat on her couch he always jumped up and took his special place in her lap, waiting for her to pet him.  He went on lots of family vacations...even had his own suitcase!

Italian Holiday

I've just returned from a fascinating trip to Italy with good friends and traveling companions from my art guild. We traveled to Rome, Pompeii, Sorrento, Capri, and Florence.  It was amazing to see the beautiful art and experience the history of this ancient, though modern, country.  

We visited the Angel Academy of Art in Florence where students are offered a three year curriculum in classical art training.  We also spoke with some artists who were taking three months from their busy lives to hone up on their skills.  I hope you will enjoy some of my photos.

I reached a milestone last month with the 10,000th visitor to my blog!  I appreciate each and every one, and thank you for your interest in my art journey.  

Now, it is time to channel my new knowledge into creativity!
