What I am reading

Just thought maybe you wanted know what I’m reading. I don’t get a lot of reading time, as I am always busy, busy. However, this is on my nightstand; Brunelleschi’s Dome.

So far, a great read. I visited the Santa Maria Del Fiore several years ago. This site has great photos.

If you go to Florence, don’t miss the Uffizi Gallery.  Art comes alive in this place. There was one painting that found a special place in my heart. It had an inner glow that I have never seen reproduced in a photograph.

Flora by Titian

I guess the thing that struck me, aside from her obvious beauty, is the difference between the photograph and the real thing. It is just so striking. But, it’s like that with most art, isn’t it?

Have a great day!
