Thunder driving Prince demented.

The Commissioned work ‘Plett Dreaming’, crated and couriered off to its new home. Decided not to try and take it with me on the flight to Jozie given the logistic challenges managing the large canvas.

The ancient city of Rieti, which according to Legend was founded by Rea, Mother of the Olympian Gods. Surrounded by majestic mountains, it’s situated at the foot of Mount Terminillo and crossed by the river Velino. Walking through tranquil countryside and olive groves, at 356km is the small town of Ponticelli.

Terry made delicious Fiori Di Zucca Fritta (Zucchini flowers stuffed with anchovies and mozzarella), with the zucchini flowers picked from the new KET vegetable gardens at Melrose House.
