There and back again!

So my nice three weeks vacation is over. I am back to the cool and rainy Chicago weather after days of pure blue skies in Italy.

As I expected I did not have much time for drawing, but I had a great time visiting, among other fine places, Tuscany and enjoying the fabulous art and architecture of Siena, Volterra and San Giminiano. By the way, if you happen to be in Siena, I recommend to try and eat in this great restaurant we randomly found while walking through the winding roads of the city: La Taverna di Cecco (Via Cecco Angliolieri, 19, 53100 Siena, Italy 0677.288.318). It's simply amazing! Too bad we could not stay longer!

Anyways, here I am ready for the winter, rested and restored. Lots of new activities expect me in the next months. I'll give my best effort to fit my little artistic projects in all this...Talkt to you soon!


  1. it's nice to have you back and it sounds like you had a lovely time!
    if i am ever in Siena i will remember to try that restaurant! :)

  2. Thanks dear! I did enjoy a lot! As for the restaurant, there is this grandmotherly lady supervising the kitchen...she is adorable and I am sure she is responsible for the masterpieces of genuinely traditional and heartwarming-mouthwatering cuisine I sampled!

  3. Well I happen to be in Sienna RIGHT now... okay well further out but it is beautiful, I cannot believe how wonderful Italy is and I have been here one day :) Can't wait to see your new projects!!

  4. Ah great! So glad that you are enjoying Italy. Soooo, you visited Isadora and her sweet owner, right? ;)
