Glazing Day in the Studio, but yesterday at the Florence Ufizzi Gallery….

April 18, 2018

We are on the final round of working in the classroom. Yesterday, was a bisque firing day. Many in our class hopped on the train into Florence. La Meridiana arranged a guide for us meeting us at the Train Station, walking us through parts of the city and into the Ufizzi Gallery. This is the way to learn more about Florence. Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly. She pointed the high points and elegantly bypassed the not as important buildings and artwork.

Whenever, I visit art museums, I stay away from the rooms filled with Renaissance paintings. I have always found them dark and forbidding.

Our guide showed me that there is so much more to know and understand about this era. One thing of interest is that many paintings inside of the Ufizzi Gallery “glow” and not just from the lighting. The paint is so vibrant. She informed us of the various periods and how the painting styles evolved over the decades and centuries.

We also had wonderful views of the Duomo and Ponte Vecchio.

I slept on the train home. My classmates are learning that I can sleep on any moving vehicle. Take good care and do something creative today. C2
