For this evening musings, you et an odd assortment…
Monday afternoon a sinker came over me so I yielded and came home for a nap. The nap lasted a little too long but when I awoke, I still grabbed my watercolor paints and my ink pen and dashed across the street to an interesting castle’s grounds. I found an empty seat and worked on an ink drawing for a bit before the attendant came around scooting everyone out for closing time.
While I sat there, I was entertained by musicians doing sound checks and a little practice on a full scale stage over in the opposing corner. There was a fabulous trumpet player… Could have been Branford because I saw a notice, as I was leaving, he’ll be playing there soon. Of course his show is after I leave.
Since we’re all art critics, I’m sure you realize the proportions on the photo do not match the dimension of the postcard. It’s ok.
I’m a fan of trolleys and their tracks. There are some great ones here!
I spent most of today around the plaza of the Duomo (major cathedral)… Best plaza I’ve visited in Italy. I like it much more than Venice or any I visited in Rome. There are museums and shops and fab buildings and musicians and performers and not many pigeons! The Vatican needs to take a few pointers from the Milanese 😏😄
I was people watching, window shopping, museum touring and gelato eating nearly all afternoon. There were several good musicians on the plaza (piazza).
Pix from today:
The two soldiers above are carrying machine guns. Lots of police and soldiers everywhere!
Some of the art I saw today and yesterday….
And with this happy pup, nothing more to add!
