Getting Ready For Art and Adventure in Italy


Prato, Italy


Getting ready for a month in Italy. Most of my time will be spent in the city of Prato 30 minutes from Florence. Hopefully a photo of the town I found online appears above.

A quick internet search uncovered a few interesting items.
Prato is the birth place of biscotti, the capital of Italian textile trade and home of Fa Filippo Lippi frescoes and possibly a centuries old scandal.

Once I’m traveling I hope I will be able to use Google Nexus tablet to post my own photos and blog.

So this is a test

About Babs

I'm a narrative sculptor navigating her way through the ever-changing currents in what feels like an art ocean. Whether appreciating the calm rhythm of calls for art and exhibiting, or waiting to catch a big wave of inspiration to take me to the top. I just love being in the water. Formerly a pickle packer, theater major, crisis counselor and occupational therapist with a BA in Communications and a BS in Occupational Therapy, only to discover I've always been an artist. My work grows from a strong connection to people and a passion for discovering the beauty in ordinary things. I sculpt figuratively in clay, utilizing the female form and women’s themes. Frequently my inspiration is drawn from childhood memories and my own short poems. Like each of us as humans every work is uniquely influenced by the past and present and has a narrative.
