The dome in the Roman Pantheon is open to the sky.  It provides all of the natural light in the church.  The result is slowly moving spotlight, picking out first one wall than another in the Pantheon.

Freight at Duck, Original Painting by Jenny Armitage

Freight at Dusk (16 x 21 watercolor) Available

I drive through Albany on my way to Art in the Valley several times a month.  Crossing over the railway bridge I admire the trains, but there’s no place to pull over and stop.  So last month, I made a point of pulling into the station and walking up the bridge to photograph the trains.   I may do it again at a different time of day.

Setinel Fortress, Original Painting of Pueblos Blancos by Jenny Armitage

Setenil Fortress (watercolor 15 x 24) Available

Setenil de los Bodegas of Cadiz Province, Spain is one of the more interesting pueblos blancos of Andulacia.  Unlike most pueblos blancos it occupies either ridge of a valley rather than a hilltop.  Many of the houses are semi-troglodyte, occupying shallow caves in the valley walls.  One street includes a natural tunnel.

The view in this painting is from our apartment porch in Setenil looking across at the old castile.
