On the train to Orvieto

 First of all, you know how I love to share my WIPs. Could be because I like to see them here too:)  Anyway, while in Orvieto, I discovered how crazy easy it is to use my iphone for snapping quick shots. 
You may not need to know that I HATE HATE HATE the Termini  train station in Rome. My experience the first time I went almost kept me from going again. Yes, this time is was the "fear of the known" instead of the "fear of the unknown". 

However, as many of you have heard me say, "if I did it once I can do it again".  And that was what I had to hold onto. I won't go into the gory details except to say it was just as traumatic the second time as the first. 
When we heard the assignment to paint a story with two or more characters, I had one to tell. 

Once I finally boarded the train, I saw all these people.


  1. Oh Sharon this is too funny. So do tell about the experience! You have my interest peeked!

    Such characters!

    Cool idea for a shaded photo, but be careful of the disappearing dress. You may capture more than you bargained for...

  2. This is beautiful Sharon . . . I loved reading the story and now extra happy we avoided Termini together heading to FCO!

  3. I love this piece, and I would love to hear more of the story. We hope to visit Rome next year...why should this train station be avoided?

  4. Your artwork is always so beautiful, and incredibly inspiring. Always makes me think... I need to try something new.

    Love this.

  7. Brilliant! Love that you shared the progression. Termini in Rome - that WAS challenging with the language barrier...thank goodness for the kindness of strangers and informative maps/signs. Way to go Sharon!
