Where did the summer go? .... A view of St. Peters

This is a view of St. Peters in Italy. You might be thinking that I visited Italy over the summer... well not quite. I took another imaginary adventure with Laure Ferlita, and loved journeying through Italy from my dining room table. It would have been even better if I'd really been in Italy, but I'll have to save that experience for another time... when all the kids are out of college.

Laure's version of travel is so intriguing ... What a great way to "see" the world, capturing it like this. And I agree, where is summer? I can't believe the holidays are right around the corner!

Very nice, Claire--you'll be ready for sketching in person when you finally get the chance to go there for real!

Another wonderful piece. Takes me right back to my visits to St. Peters. Before you know it, the boys will be launched and you will sketching in your travel journal on location.

I had fun seeing you again in our "other life."

Clare, this is lovely like all of your "trip work" has been. I have enjoyed traveling with you.

Am sorry I am unable to go to NOLA live but I am sure you will have a super time. Tell me how you like the alligator at Pierre Maspero's.

See you soon on another trip.
