Watercolors of Italy

Cell Phone Eavesdropper
by Jane McElvany Coonce
I have been doing some watercolor of my Umbrian trip.  I have so many great photos to pick from that it's hard to decide which one to do first.

"CellPhone Eavesdropper" was a great shot of a young man talking on his cell phone in the open courtyard while an elderly woman sat on the bench inside the archway and observed him (or maybe even listened in as he talked to his girlfriend!) This was in the town of Villa Lante with beautiful gardens.

 Flower Box of Assisi was one of many shots I took of the beautiful flower boxes that you see all over Italy.  These geraniums were particularly lovely, and it was on the 2nd floor of the house, so it made for an interesting angle.

Assisi is a scene looking down the hill at the houses and churches in the town.  Assisi is the town known for one of the most famous Umbrians of all times, Francis of Assisi.  The day we went there, they were having a Medieval Festival, and everyone was decked out in costume.  So cool!

We are going to have a show of all the art work of Umbria of the artists that went with me to Italy.  Mark your calendars now!  Save the date of Sunday, Sept. 21 from 5:30 - 7 pm at Cassatt's.  
More details to come later. The show will hang from Sept 14- Oct. 19.
