Italy Sketches 2011

I had the rare opportunity of planning and executing a trip to Italy with my boyfriend, Erik, during the summer of 2011.  It was a life-changing experience which will remain with me for the remainder of my life.  I took the opportunity to sketch from life, focusing more on architecture than I had during my previous trip in 2008. I feel very fortunate to have experienced all that I did.
