Like Sargent in Florence

Ok, so what I mean is that I was in Florence, like Sargent!  This summer I was thrilled to see the show ''John Singer Sargent and the Impressionists in Italy'' at the Palazzo Strozzi.  What a joy to see so many great paintings in a place where few tourists would go, just a few blocks from the Duomo!

This interior scene was in the convent where we stayed, so I set up a few things similar to Mr. Sargent's glowing interior painting, The Hotel Room.  I bow to his great genius, and offer my homage.  All of Sargent's paintings can be viewed at
