Looking down the track toward Rome

We are so fortunate to know we’ll be back in a few months! A presto!

Madonna della Cava

We were here once again for the parade of Madonna della Cava around our neighborhood. Always lots of fun!

Sue Spargo Magic

Sue is just a fabulous teacher. She creates magic. We got to see the beginning of the work from her class this week. Each reflects the artist’s views and experiences of the week. Each so individual and compelling. As these pieces are finished we have been promised pictures!

Wonderful, simpatico group. Such a memorable week. Thank you all for a fabulous time.

Palazzone Winery

Palazzone is a beautiful vineyard where they make wonderful wines. It was a spectacular day for our visit this week. The vines have soft new growth, vibrant in the afternoon sunlight. As always, an idyllic few hours

A Day in Orvieto

Sue Spargo had things ready for the beginning of her workshop

Those in Discover Orvieto head underground to Etruscan caves.

This particular one has 20 years of an artist working on the walls.

There are some medieval ceramics on display – below.

And here we have a tunnel that connects different caves.
