PC Challenge Week 24~ITALY

Week 24 finds the challenge  in ITALY~ A place I hope one day to visit-There are so Many amazing sites in Italy -that it was hard to choose one place BUT I did choose to visit ~GENOA. A place that is extra special ,because I was raised in a town called Genoa- Genoa is: the birthplace of Christopher Columbus, 6th largest city in Italy, home to a wealthy seaport and it has the most amazing cathedrals!(diSan Lorenzo, Basilica SS Annunziata del Vastato, Basilica of Nostra Signora) The main centre of town revolves around Piazza del Ferrari (famous  Opera house is located here). My subject for my card is an image from Staglieno Cemetery (this cemetery has the most decorative statues and monuments I have every seen ) .Just thought this image followed my storyline perfectly...

Front of Card
Back to my Copics markers to do this image.
This beautiful angel is a full scale tombstone marker
in Staglieno Cemetery.

Back of Card
Just received your last postcards-
Since arriving in England my “Visions” have become more frequent and ‘dark’. The front of this card is a depiction of one such image- Since you have been unable to provide information as to the events of Austria; I have sought assistance from a hypo-therapist here. So please Do Not contact your friend to “dig around” my life! My stay in England will be extended- if you’re near Devonshire –drop in for tea.
My friends are in Italy- lots of time to paint-so they mailed this for me.
Take care of yourself,
