Apulia, Italy - Thank YOU, Gianfranco
It's warmed up somewhat, and the rain will be restive today - the last day of the holidays --- so I was really glad to see it ...
Still, after so much cold and now with the rain, my thoughts turn, as usual, to sunny Italy.
My friend, Gianfranco, offered me the incredible opportunity to paint from one of his awesome photographs. I chose this one from Apulia (see Gianfranco's glorious work - www.flickr.com/photos/gianfrancobudano/3005429153/) ...
And I hope I've done your vision justice, my friend!
Thank YOU, Gianfranco for allowing me the use of your photo -- and more, for transporting me to the land of my dreams ....!
