During my stay at Civitella Ranieri I woke up every morning at 5:30 AM. I was very determined to enjoy every single moment of my experience, and I did! I read, ran each day around the castle. I had the perfect time not only doing focused work on my paintings, but also developing ideas for the future. As an Italian artist living abroad it has been a wonderful privilege to work surrounded by the historical heritage of the Umbrian region. The only thing I did not manage to do was to see the marvelous Upupa bird! Oh well, maybe next time.
