Prince died two years ago today at his home in Paisley Park. I was in Italy then, as I am now. I remember running to the local news stand looking for an Italian newspaper that would confirm this sad news ... #prince #rip #nothingcompares2u #collage #cutandpaste #sketchbook #lifeofgayartist #anotherdayinsangimignano
“ Be a poem ... always !! “ Good morning from San Gimignano #lifeofgayartist #collage #cutandpaste #artistsketchbook #instagayitalia #sangimignano
Day trip yesterday ... started the day off with a visit to Volterra, the city of alabaster. Then a brief stopover to Pisa for the obvious photo ops. Lunch was in a small restaurant on the Mediterranean and then finished the afternoon in Lucca. A lot of miles covered and not enough time ... #lifeofgayartist #exhausted #daytripper #voltarre #pisa #lucca #italy

“ He spoke to the ancients and asked for advise ... “. An old photograph inspires a new page in my sketchbook #sangimignano #artistsketchbook #lifeofgayartist #traveljournal  #barpiazzetta #bloodorange #startoftheday

Cappuccino and collage at the start of the day ... greetings from San Gimignano #cutandpaste #lifeofgayartist #cappuccino #italy #startoftheday #letsdothis
Another day ... another revelation. Something is stripped away ... something is revealed in its stead. The cobalt blue of a new Italian jacket ... the same blue of cyanotype exposed in the sun. More postcards from San Gimignano #cyanotype #cobaltblue #sketchbook #lifeofgayartist #sangimignano

Third full day in ... at my desk reading Patti Smith’s “ Devotion “ and painting another St. Sebastian into my sketchbook #sangimignano #artistretreat #sketchbook #stsebastian #pattismith #lifeofgayartist #devotion
“ ... And all my wandering leads me back to my work table. A piece of paper is glued to the page of a book that only hours earlier, begged for ornamentation. On another page ... a sketch emerges ... not from the “ here and now “ but from the memory the here and Now called forth. I live between the lines of poetry and song and my mind are the fragments of a collage. These are my postcards from San Gimignano. “ #lifeofgayartist #sketchbook #artistjournal #sangimignano #ivecomehome
