Image of the Day: Italian Mirror
This photo was taken in an Italian villa. The scrolls on the wall are simply paint; the mirror is gilded wood. For me, this image holds all of the allure of Italy.
And it has something else. Some cultures believe mirrors have spiritual power: some believe they ward off evil spirits; others that they attract such spirits. This mirror definitely leads the viewer into another world.
I'm going back to Italy this summer, teaming up with painter Linda Richichi for our Intuitive Italy Painting/Photography Workshop, for a very special week in Italy, June 29 – July 7, 2012, to be held in a villa near Todi. Our goal for this all inclusive dream trip is to add magic and depth to your work and joy to your life. Always wanted to learn to paint? To develop your unique artistic voice in your photographs? An upscale villa awaits your arrival in Todi for an extraordinary week at a special artist rate. Enhance your vision and techniques. Enjoy the sunflower fields. Visit the beautiful towns of Orvieto, Assisi, DeRuta, Spoleto and more. Novice to advanced artists are welcome in either/both disciplines.
