Going Back to Orvieto

When I went to Orvieto in 2010, this unsigned print hung straight across from me in the studio. 
I was inspired to paint it in my journal.
Although, it seems that I didn't share that journal page here. 
I will do that now. 

Have I told you I was in conflict about going back to the same place?
 Yes, and I appeased the voices with the notion that a second trip was indeed necessary because I didn't finish my journal. 

I wondered if this painting would still be on the wall in the studio.
I also wondered why I didn't take a photo of it the first time.
Hoping it would still be there on the wall, I had to go back to do that!
My heart sunk the first time we entered the studio.
It wasn't on the wall. 
However, a quick search and I found it in the corner, on the floor, under a cabinet and with a broken glass. 

I stayed some extra days in Orvieto after the class was over and most had departed. 
Then, I pulled out my 2010 Journal and painted another version of her. 

PS:  I may have to go back a third time. I still didn't finish my 2010 journal.
PSS:  I still have one more Orvieto share and then I will get up to date with blogging.......with a new computer and Elements 11 and dealing with all those new learning curves.
