Topics: Italy Trip 2008
The next day we headed to Montepulciano, a beautiful hilltop town that is surrounded by wineries. Mixed among the winding streets were many places for wine tasting. A relaxing and quiet day.
A few days ago my blog was tagged by my friend and talented artist, Marian Fortunati. Having never been tagged before, I was unsure what this meant. Would my computer crash, was my blog being frozen, did I need to shut down my system? No, Marian assured me. I only needed to include her link in my blog, write 5 to 7 unusual things about myself, and then pass on the tag to five other bloggers. So here goes.
Those unusual things about myself.
1) I am clumsy. Today I was talking to another artist friend and she told me she was very embarrassed because she had recently broken her toe. I am a klutz and have broken varies toes no less than four times, probably more. Hard to believe I wanted to be a ballet dancer when I was a kid. Loved to be on point. Maybe that is why I have feet like a duck, very wide. (Is that three unusual things about me???)
2) I was a tomboy as a kid. I could run faster, climb higher, and spit farther then any of the boys I played with. But I was a real loner and spent hours by myself in the farmland and by the stream near my town in PA. (Not something kids are encouraged to do today.)
3) I met my third and final husband on the Internet. For me it was love at first sight. Never happened like that before. (Today, one in seven marriages result from meetings on the Internet, so perhaps not so unusual.)
4) I firmly believe that just because you think they're all out to get you doesn't mean they're not. (Just a little paranoid.)
5) I hate the rain. I can't remember when I learned to swim, and am an experienced scuba diver, but when it comes to rain I am like a cat. Get me out of it.
Now for the five bloggers I am tagging. I have listed artists whom I admire and whose blogs I follow, so take a look at these blogs too.
- Siena: Medieval Jewel
- Florence: Birth of the Renaissance
- Italy: Last Day
- Italy: The Final Days
- Rome Part 3
- Rome Part 4: The Final Chapter
- Rome Part 2
- Rome: The Eternal City

Thanks for posting all these pictures of Italy! Is there going to be a new Italian period in your painting?
My parents and brother saw your waterfall picture hanging in our dining room for the first time (for real rather than as a photograph) yesterday and they are very impressed. I've almost forgotten what it was like not having that painting there, it has become its natural place.
I am glad someone is enjoying the photos. It has been great for me to do the blog because I remember it all over again. I will be doing an Italy series and hope to start it this coming week. I will keep you posted.
