Due to its being allergy season, and the oak trees’ blooming stuff is still around, I’ve been in an antihistamine daze. It causes me to need to sleep in the middle of the day; I sleep several hours, and then am up all night. So after getting some work done I’ve been watching The Borgias on Netflix. Takes place in Rome around 1500, when one of the Borgias has finally become Pope. In certain landscape scenes my jaw dropped, and I said, Hey, I know those trees! Those are JonDude trees!
I just love those cypresses, his studies were pretty much my favorite paintings. The hills frequently look familiar too. I didn’t realize we had gotten a tour of the Italian countryside -- or, at least, so much of one. I think I might go look at his site to enjoy those again.
