Daily Post’s Weekly Theme – Peaceful

Nella Chiesa (23" x 18")

I travelled to Italy a couple of years ago with my Italian class.  We stayed in our teacher’s hometown in Umbria and took day trips to some of the picturesque hill towns near Perugia.  This watercolor painting is of the duomo (cathedral) in Gubbio, which was built late in the 12th century.

Although the towns are small and crowded, the markets and cafes are noisy and busy, and Italians like being closer together than Americans, the churches are havens of peace and rest, and are treated with much respect.

  1. Beautiful, Ruth! Definitely peaceful and amazingly spacious considering the culture, yes.The people must feel like they’re in heaven, which is the goal.
    Thanks for labeling the size.
    Now I wonder about the direction of the gorgeous window and the time of day . . . 😉
