Ciompi Antique Market Florence Italy

Dear Art-loving Friend,

Today I start my last term at the Angel Academy of Art (yesterday, a Monday, was a holiday in Italy).  I have been preparing for the challenge of painting three still-life paintings, each with a specific list of things to learn, as well as working with live models.

The hunt for objects to paint can be fun or frustrating, depending on the score.  Here are a few of the things that could have been found at the most recent installation of the antique market in Piazza Ciompi in Florence, Italy.  The market fills the piazza every 4th Sunday of each month.

Happy Hunting, indeed!

And happy new year.
