Enchanting Sicily

Map of Sicily 11x14 print available $30

 On my last trip to Sicily, I traveled again to Scopello del Castellammare and Palermo.  I was able to spend a week in both locations.  Familiar with these places, I totally immersed myself in its culture and beauty.   

 I sat by the sea, and found some quiet steps and church interiors in Palermo to paint my watercolors. 

 In Palermo, I also shopped at the exciting Ballaro and the Vucciria market. My grandfather and his father sold meat at this market before coming to America.  My apartment was located in a local neighborhood, where nearby, I enjoyed meeting the residents and workers in the small shops.

On this voyage I also visited the majestic ancient site of Segesta, and took a breath taking cable car to the medieval mountain town of Erice. I traveled to the western town of San Vito lo Capo which has a cous cous festival, the last week in September.
