On balconies, both in Guardia and Venice, people keep canaries as pets. In my drawing, they're free to explore a little patch of paradise I've created. The more I add color, the more I want to work and see the finished project-it's good to have that feeling.
Yesterday evening I took a four kilometer hike to the neighboring to buy olive oil with another artist and the residency director. Along the way was a fresh spring where we filled our water bottles-it tasted so fresh! I also ate two figs from a tree, they were everywhere. It was a beautiful walk with a cool breeze and beautiful plants along the way. Check out the coral roses, they were almost fluorescent!
