We promised a list of Italy's Ten Most Astonishing Works of Art and, here in mid-July, please know we haven't forgotten. Bear with us. We landed in the USA and turned around and took two more trips! One to Chicago (you'll see the Art Institute stuff here shortly) for the American Assn. of Museums conference. Then off to Boulder to see our godchild and niece,Charlotte, graduate from high school. Suffered a case of delayed jetlag until a few days ago. The Italy paintings are coming...we promise. But I'll post about art-filled Chicago first.
