Standing out in the huge courtyard in front of the Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi. Holding my sketchbook, quickly making an impression to save with a marker pen while feeling the hot Italian sun burning my head and arms.
My head is also burning with the beauty of paintings by Giotto that I have seen. Frescoes of the life of St. Francis with so much movement, kindness, love and emotional realism.
