Spent the morning with the Andersons for a slow breakfast/brunch at a cafe near the hotel. The waiter was Dominican and very friendly. The food and company were fantastic! Now, OFF TO MY DEAR FLORENCE!!!! I cannot wait to see her again!
I am an Assistant Professor of Art at Lander University in Greenwood, SC. I have travelled to Italy many times and I'm thrilled to be taking students and friends to Rome, Florence, and Venice this July 2013.
As an artist, I am always inspired by my travels, whether I'm going to Italy, Estonia, Montana, or just up the road to North Carolina or the South Carolina coast. I believe that artwork should always be self-reflective. So expanding one's worldview also serves to expand one's ability to respond to the world (and oneself) meaningfully through the creation of fine art.
