When I brought a photo I took at The Forum in Rome, to my pastel workshop, some of the ladies thought I was crazy. I mean, yes, there is lot going on and an awful lot of stones and remnants of ruins but, as with most things in life, you just have to simplify. So, I left some of it very loose and dreamy and I also let quite a lot of the watercolor underpainting show through the pastel. It's at the framers now but I took a quick shot of it on my iPhone to share with you!
I miss Rome. Can you tell?

Sometime in your life you will go on a journey.
It will be the longest journey you have ever taken.
It is the journey to find yourself.
