Many artists dream about painting in Italy. Now, as retiring baby-boomers are increasingly taking up “brush and pallet knife,” more than ever, painting in Italy is the “thing.” Every day, a new “Artist’s” tour of Italy crops up in travel sections of the newspaper and on the Internet. But there still remains a majority of artists who prefer to “go it alone.” They are independent in their artistic styles, and prefer to be independent regarding their travels in Italy . This blog intends to target these free spirited artists who still need guidance to the best places to paint, especially those idyllic gems that are little known and less traveled. Certainly, independent travelers who are not artists will also benefit from this blog.

With a few exceptions, this blog is not a guide to restaurants, lodging, rental cars, or shopping, (except for art supplies.)

Sprinkled among the posts are: my paintings, and a few Italian proverbs and poems written by notable Italian authors for whom I work as a translator.

Day Four - Set Back

My plan for today was to post my first guest Italian poet, but you know what they say about "best-laid plans", they continually jump up, run around, and spit in your face. I spent too many hours attempting to add a counter to this blog in order to keep track of all my thousands of readers, but luck was no Lady today, she was a stubborn Broad who fought me every inch of the way. So for now, I'll just have to imagine that there are hundreds of readers pouring over my every word.
A domani,
Ciao, Pam
