MOMENTS IN THE TIME OF PANDEMIC - NO. 12

My memory of this lock down will forever be intrinsically linked to these images, a poignant reminder...

By the time Italy was in lockdown, I was already enjoying virtual travel through images received from my daughter. After busy months tour guiding throughout Italy, she was spending time out to explore Peru. A shared love of ancient history, artefacts from lost civilizations, from stone walls to vessels and more, this provided me with a wealth of information and visual references to work from in my studio.
A shared experience over time and space.
My memory of this lock down will forever be intrinsically linked to these images and a poignant reminder of the unsettling prospect of an indefinite separation when Peru then went into lockdown and it seemed she might not be able to return for the foreseeable future.
In the spring of lockdown, long walks with my dog Bosco was taking us past an abundance of flowers of every hue along the road side or in wooded areas. I was holding classes on colour mixing which had been stopped mid-way due to the virus and was missing teaching.
Bringing home some of these flowers plus pickings from gardens along the way, I decided to paint them adding the information on colours used along with the images.
Not sure where I'll go with this elaborate doodling, but it's been good for the soul.

MY CORTONA

MY CORTONA WAS DUE TO BE LAUNCHED DURING EASTER 2020. UNFORTUNATELY, FOR EVERYONE, COVID 19 MADE AN APPEARANCE.


Our blog had been intended as a central hub for Cortona lovers world-wide, bringing you useful information, profiles of the many interesting people who live & visit the town, up-dates on local news, special stories & upcoming events

With the world still reeling from the pandemic, we have chosen to suspend some features & have decided instead, - at least for now - to bring you a limited version of our blog by introducing a series called MOMENTS.

We would love you to contribute!

We also thought that in the absence of an imminent visit, you might enjoy a little Local news and a few Tips for (future) Trips
We look forward to seeing you soon!
