11x14" oil on canvas, SOLD
Today is the first day I've actually exhaled in four days. You see, my son, Zac, left last week for a semester abroad. In Italy. His mother has an overactive imagination (no surprise there, right?) and a penchant for worriment. I can work myself into a dither. Especially when the kid doesn't call or email for four days. I pictured the worst: hospitals, ditches, Amsterdam...you name it. So I breathed a big sigh of relief when the email arrived this morning with news of his travels and plates of homemade pasta and getting lost in Orvieto, his new home. Buon viaggio, Giacomo!
