From Jim's Travel Journal: After the morning visit to Deruta, we headed across the Umbrian countryside to visit the Tenuta Le Velette family winery. The winery is situated on a hill with incredible views of Orvieto and the surrounding valley. White wines are a specialty in Umbria, but they also have award winning reds.

Traveler Painting "Shopping in Orvieto": Here I am looking at Day 6 Jim M's in his trip journal, and I realize that I've seen one of his photos someplace else. In fact, I just started a painting of this very spot, just a couple of weeks ago. It was from my dear old friend Fran, who was one of our very first Travelers in this series.
Since I had the painting started, I thought I'd do the final touches on it for this days pain.
|I came in a little closer than Fran's shot when I designed the painting. If you look it's almost the same cropping what Traveler Jim has in his photo.|
|The couple in the painting are friends of Frans, who traveled with them on this journey.|
|This is where I left off on this painting a couple of weeks ago.|
