Another fun day painting in Cortona, Italy Sept. 8, 2008

A beautiful clear sunny day, we walked up and around and up and around (those of you who know Cortona will know what I mean) to a painting site Sylvia and I found behind the church of San Francisco.

My students are troopers!  It takes more than a bleeding thumb and a cramp in a leg to stop them from painting!

The devoted son brings Mama out for her daily walk and she stops to talk to each artist and admire our work.  Neither she nor her son speaks English, we do not speak Italian, but the conversation was delightful!

Pete says Cathy never misses a photo op, we believe him!

If you have seen the movie "Under the Tuscan Sun" or watched the TV boradcast on PBS of the Andre Reu Concert in Tuscany you will recognize the piazza where we are enjoying our wine.

Tommie really did order the personal size pizza, they eat big in Italy!
