Carthusian Monasteries ~ 40"x54" ~ acrylics & ink on paper

My search for the right Fermata del Autobus was successful.

The bus I took left a Florence full of tourists wearing shorts and sneakers, carrying maps, and eating ice cream on sunny pavements. In thirty minutes I arrived at the Certosa del Galluzzo (also called the Certosa di Val d'Ema), a peaceful place made more serene by the fact that no one here spoke English.

I have written more about the monasteries here.
