Florence – Day 3

It took us about an hour to pick an outfit for this day. The Bobuli gardens were the perfect destination for this sunny day. Walking in, they were a lot bigger than I’ve imagined. There were so many different sculptures all around and the fresh smell after a rainy night was a great bonus.

Sitting down with Regina for a quick botanical drawing tutorial was almost meditational. It felt like time stood still and it was just the nature and my sketchbook. I never focused on botanical themes in my work, or had any experiance in botanical art, but those few sketches were able to make me stop and appriciate the simplest thing for a few moments, I almost forgot I was in Italy. Still can’t believe I’m here.
