Before I left for Italy, I planned to write and paint my way through our trip. Using my S Memo on my smartphone, I was able to write in the evening about our activities during the day. And I brought with me the little bitty journal my mom had given me as a present. I started to paint or draw every day, but didn't quite keep up. Here are some of my drawings that most people haven't seen:

Here's a quick sketch and the actually photo of the monastery and graveyard that we saw, down in the valley from Cortona. I was just amazed at the place, but we never went down there to visit. We spent the whole day in Cortona - it was just great!
He's another sketch and photo, this time in Bolzano. I thought when I took the photo you could see the whole bridge, with all the locks up and down the metal rungs. I guess I didn't. But it wasn't hard to forget and I was able to draw it in my journal (I added the watercolors later).
Here's a larger sketch of the bridge in Bolzano I did in my art journal. Unfortunately, I was still away when the Letter B was scheduled. But you can find it here, in a post I called "Why I Loved Bolzano". Hopefully, there will be enough cities and subjects to get me through the alphabet.
