Here I am, working hard at Lake Garda in northern Italy. Aside from the excellent food and wine, I was also taking plenty of photographs for future reference for paintings. The incredible scenery around the northern part of the lake is certainly very inspirational. I was expecting to see a few galleries in the little towns that surround the lake as it would appear to be quite the holiday destination. However, I was surprised at the lack of any kind of art outlet. Other than one or two small galleries selling very sub-standard art, there was nothing, which was disappointing. But there was always another glass of lovely Italian wine to be had.
