The Pantheon, Rome, 2004


This of course is the interior of the dome of the Pantheon in Rome. I was in Italy for five weeks in the summer of 2004 studying Architecture and touring all the sites. On my second weekend in Rome I spent two hours sketching this. I was seated beside a little Italian boy who kept looking over my shoulder and pointing out things on the dome that I was drawing. It was one of the most amazing artistic experiences I have ever had.

My Walk to School, Siena, 2004

Walk to School

This is a sketch of a little corner that I walked through each morning on my way to classes on the other side of Siena. It just seemed like an unlikely place to find beauty.
