February days in Canada bring on daydreams of sunny warm places! My subconscious desires for warmth must have been driving the subject choices for these 2 art cards.
Positano is a dream I had for years that I’ve now been blessed to have visited a number of times. It never fails to lure me back like the legendary Sirens that supposedly lived on the small islands opposite this beautiful cliffside town. Positano is a dream a friend of mine also had – she kept a picture of Positano with her through her fight with breast cancer. And in 2007, the two of us sat on the terrace at Bar Bruno in Positano and toasted her victory over this disease and to the power of Positano! It will forever be a very special sun-splashed place! This art card is one view up the cliff from the main town beach.
In 2011, I visited Puglia, and spent a week discovering the cities and towns in the central and southern parts of the region. And in July – ouch! But there was something cooling about walking through these village streets with their whitewashed houses and smooth travertine and limestone walkways. Then there is the decorative Baroque ironwork on windows, balconies and doors, and the multitude of flowers to distract you from the heat. This art card captures one such street in Locorotondo, which has the designation as one of the most beautiful villages in Italy. If you are considering a trip to Puglia, here’s a great place to stay, close to Locorotondo.
