The first map below is Florence during the Renaissance, the second is now. We are in the lower left hand neighborhood, the Palazzo San Niccolo, underneath the graffiti.
Yesterday, Saturday, was our first day together as a group. We toured the city, the came home to rest our feet, share some Prosecco, have dinner while I did a demo in pastels.
This morning we hit the Accademia to see "David" and do a little more touring, then this afternoon, our model shows up, we'll work until 7 p.m. Then out to dinner.
We are in heaven. Of course, at breakfast we dreamed about purchasing property and starting an artists' colony.
