George’s Postcard Note: Wandering down the mountain after a visit to the old Roman Spa at Bagni di Lucca, we stopped at an ice cream café on the banks of a mountain stream. After that sugar break I walked the bridge and looked over to the riverside, houses with a gap affording a small park. Seems that every city or town or even village in Italy has a space devoted to “sitting around”. Usually the space also contains some monument. This one was a copy of a roman god (what else?) with urns flanking it and the view onto the river. I decided to center it in the painting – the only thing left in white with all competing colors and forms framing the twisting God.
