Inspiration abroad

Sorry for the long delay between posts...but it was all for good reason.
My wonderful husband and I will be married 30yrs this year and we decided to take the long delayed amazing vacation this year in honor of such an event.
We went to Italy...and did a three stop tour. Our first stop, the Cinque Terre, one of the most visually amazing places ever. Second stop, Florence....beautiful city with awesome art everywhere. Third stop, Venice....how more romatic can it get!!!
We hiked the trails between the five villages of the Cinque Terre and enjoyed the beach for a bit as well. Lovely people, amazing vistas, and delicious locally made wines.
In Florence we visited all the "hot" spots. The famous galleries, a visit to see "David", the Ponte Vecchio, and of course a climb to the top of the Duomo. Each evening as we dined outside we were entertained by street musicians.

Venice and the outter islands were simply a feast for the eyes!! We had a beautiful room with a private terrace on a canal. We enjoyed wandering the maze of tiny streets every day as well as taking boats from place to place. We spent a day exploring the island of Murano and its amazing glassworks...as well as the most marvelously colorful island of Burano.

I will be posting to the FanPage other wonderful pics of creativity that I found during this trip. Stop by and check it out when you can.

Website updates

I'm soo delighted to have my Torn Paper Paintings website all cleaned up and fresh faced!!
I've been soo busy lately that I hadn't been able to write up all the revisions I wanted and collect up all the images I need to have changed out and get all this to my awesome web gal...Sarah...from Sarahs Simple Sites. Let me just say...her site work is anything but "simple".
I love my website and I love her work. If you need a great website at a more than fair price...she's your gal.
Thank you Sarah!!
