Florida painter, Everglades, Marco Island, artist Jo-Ann Sanborn



Rome! Fat pigeons and cappachino in a rooftop garden for breakfast and the Spanish steps out my window. Rome is full of people for the Easter holiday.

Walking the streets, the colors of the buildings are rich with the patina of age, and art and sculpture is everywhere. My art supplies remain in the suitcase as I experience visual artistic overload.
Enjoyed a visit to the Sistine Chapel yesterday. By 9 am the lines of people waiting already stretched many blocks. I was very glad to have pre-ordered the no-line tour which was well-organized and efficient. While it was delightful to see the Chapel, the beautiful Raphael paintings and the Pieta, after a while it was a relief to get away from the jostling crowds. Today is much quieter as the holiday visitors thin out.
