ILLUMINATION, watercolor

Illumination, 11x15 inches,  watercolor

This is a view of St. Francis of Assisi Church from a vintage point on the road. Inside, the walls are covered with paintings by Giotto and his students.

Reading about Dante, in DANTE, A LIFE, by R.W.B. Lewis, I find that once during a walk with his friend Latini, he predicted the future for him. Later Dante put this conversation in his COMEDIA,  like this: "If you follow your star, you cannot fail to reach a glorious port, if I discern rightly, in the fair life." Francis of Assisi, Dante, and anybody who ever was successful, followed his/her star. So should we, and we will reach our port.
