Another view~ Ponte Vecchio

~Ponte Vecchio~ Florence, Italy~

This is another little glimpse of the painting I did for my friend, commemorating our trip.

What else can you say about this special place? Jewelry galore! At every turn there is a shop window over-flowing with gold and gems.

The view of the Arno and the distant hillside is breathtaking.

I would love to set up a small table and illustrate the view and characters surrounding.


  1. Dear Debra, I think you are in desperate need of Italy. Book a ticket, hop in the plane and get your Italian Shot....My door is open (after the 9th of june...with all the moving and stuff)....I'm waiting for you, XXX, Carmie.

  2. I could picture you on the ponte Vecchio with a little table set up, selling your sweet lifescapes. Couples on their honeymoon, ladies, students and travelers would all gather round to take a memory home.

  3. Memories are a beautiful keepsake. You are most fortunate to be able to share such a trip with a good friend. It's great that you can illustrate through your minds' eye - very happy to look at!

  4. Debra, you have brought back some wonderful memories of my visit to Florence and crossing the Ponte Vecchio. Congratulations on your 100th post! You are such a gem in the blogging community - so glad to have "met" you! Have a wonderful weekend.

  5. Deb, perhaps one day this dream can come true to set a small table and illustrate the view and characters. Wouldn't it be fun to spend the summer there? I enjoyed another peak view of your special gift to a special friend. Thank you for sharing! Have a golden weekend my sweet friend! xoxo

  6. I too remember a special visit to Florence after I graduated from college. The very first thing that happened when my mother and I arrived exhausted from a long flight at our hotel was a waiter came to us with delicioso cappucinos in hand as a welcome. Never forgot that and that was 30+ years ago. xoxo

  7. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  8. So beautiful! What a fun remembrance.
