Cloister of Santo Spirito

Oil on canvas

Cloisters are fascinating islands of peace. They bring up feelings of safety and comfort. Ideal places for contemplation.
This particular garden was part of the Convent of Santo Spirito. Last master piece of Pippo Bruneleschi. Tourist don’t come here that much though and that’s fine with me.
While I was painting, one of the monks brought me a chair so that I could sit while painting. He meant well. But with thanks I declined. I always stnad while I paint. I can’t put enough energy into the painting when I sit.
This is the last of the five paintings I did in Florence.
