I figure while you survey your options of what you are going to paint today in your journal or postcards that you may as well have a nice place to enjoy your coffee 😛 (There’s no need to hide….no one cares what you look like without make-up…I’ve been out scaring the locals for hours already;)
It’s a flower kind of day —here’s what’s blooming in Cortona!!
(Please note: The photos I share here of our time in Italy are to be used as reference for doing watercolors for personal journals or postcards only. I please ask that they are used soley for that purpose:-)
