George’s Postcard Note: You never know what will develop when you sit down to paint a place. This windy day I chose the protected cloister of this monastery. My inspiration, was the traditional form of open space surrounded by arcades on four sides. As I sat drawing the space, people walked by on the roof over the arcade, drrawing my eye upward to the dormers and upper roofs. This space had been converted to a art museum with galleries on the upper level. Did monks in the 12th century walk there also?
