Last night, we were walking through the Campo San Giacometto towards the Ponte del Rialto on our way to see a play at the Teatro Malibran. I observed that the Carnevale lights had not been taken down yet but their unlit forms were nice to see in the dark. Such a lovely play of circles and arches. (Over the past few weeks, they glowed with a blue neon light). Today, after sending a fax from the main post office, I walked through that campo again and stopped to draw.

I think your drawing log is wonderful!
I came across it while online in the wee hours looking at a gallery in DM. I am a painter recently moved from Cornwall to DM, although originally Iowan.

I see you have found the Eden Project and a lovely cream tea at the HT in St. Mawes, good news. A very skilled and kind man, Marty, who repaired some leaded glasswork in our dining room, mentioned you when he was here in August this past year.

I am passing on your blog to my freinds and former colleagues at Falmouth College of Art (now UCF) as they will enjoy it immensely and it will inspire the students. I gather there is a connection to Cambridge, UK...and a love of old roses; you most likely are aware, but there is a delightful place called Hemingford Grey and the manorhouse there has the old roses of the author and painter, Lucy Boston. Friend and printmaker, Caroline Hemming from Cornwall, acquainted me with it.

A disparate and out of the blue posting , but may I say how much I have enjoyed your work.

Thank you very much for writing and exploring my journal. How very interesting to know that you have returned to Iowa after living in Cornwall. What a beautiful place. I did not know of Hemingford Grey. The glass worker you mentioned, Martin, is our neighbor. We lived in London for a year, and our daughter lives in the UK permanently. When I come back to Des Moines later in the spring, we will have to make contact. You can reach me through the gallery.
