When the uniqueness of a place
sings to us like a melody,
then we will know,
what it means to be home.
I can't seem to resist doing pastel paintings of places I love, especially Italy.
When I am working on the pastel, I feel connected to the place, as if there is a dialog between myself and the far away place I miss so much.
I am expressing my love for it, and somehow it answers back ...
I will always be here ...

Pastel with watercolor underpainting
If you haven't seen it already, here is my slideshow (with beautiful music, I can't take credit for!) from my first trip to Assisi.
All journeys have secret destinations
of which the traveler is unaware.
Hope you are all being blessed with an amazing weekend!
Hugs and light!
