For Sophia

Maria in Trono

These are some quick sketches I did while recently in Rome.
I so love Roma, oodles and oodles of art and history and art,
Madonnas on every corner looking down on you, bells and cobble and pillars and everything so very old and layered.. ahhh!

Today's sketches are dedicated to Sophia's Father..

may he and she be carried by friends and family
at this difficult time..

Madonna con il bambino

the first is "Maria in Trono" (mosaic)
the second is "Madonna con il bambino"

Both are found in one of my favorite churches in Rome
the Amazing Basilica di Santa Maria in Trastavere, Roma
