We took a day off from painting today to visit the Uffizi Gallery and explore a bit of the city of Florence.
Of course being artists, we had to make our first stop at an Italian Art Store! It is always fun to see the materials artists in other countries like to work with. Here we see pure pigments ready for Italian artists who like to mix their own paint.

From Florence it was on to rural Tuscany for a cooking lesson at Agriturismo I Gustasapori Fontelunga.

Dinner was fabulous and so much more fun knowing the work that went into its preparation.
