An Italian Sojourn

10994055_10153688243945663_2199835184373987528_nLet me apologize for not posting sooner. I had every intention of posting while in Italy or just after returning, unfortunately, my busy schedule as a teacher/artist prevented this until now. During the week of Carnevale we traveled to Florence and Rome with every intention of being in Venice for Fat Tuesday. However, that was not to be and we stayed an additional day in Florence. To be quite honest it was probably for the best. There is so much art and architecture it could take you months and years to see it all. Staying at la Residenza Giotto just of the we just steps away from the Duomo. Despite some difficulty finding it initially it was a pleasant and quite stay and the patio has views like this!11002598_10153689097045663_4481260444552849164_n

 

 

About Denis

A graduate of the University of Georgia’s Lamar Dodd School of Art; I have been drawing and painting ever since I can remember. I have always been inspired by the art of Romantic painters such as Eugene Delacroix, John Constable and W.M. Turner. I consider myself a modern Romantic seeking to capture the emotion or feeling of a subject above all else. Charles Baudelaire described Romanticism
as “…situated neither in choice of subject nor exact truth, but in the
way of feeling”.
