Living your dream…..Kelly Medford is and it helps that she has talent
So the A to Z challenge will give me the perfect opportunity to tell you about Kelly.
I ‘found’ Kelly on the Browsing Rome blog, a wonderful source of place to eat in Rome and places to visit on short day trips. I will need a few weeks living in Rome to make a dent in this list.
Kelly arrived in Florence to attend a renowned art school and if I am correct has not left Italy! She is living the dream many of us have after spending time in Italia!
I did a semester in Florence as well and only now after too many years am returning to live there as often as possible.
What caught my attentions: Kelly was doing a similar challenge to finish one painting a day for 120 days! This gave me an idea in November that I could do a blog a day while I was Home to Italy. I had no idea it would be so difficult and I am still writing about all the wonderful encounters I had on the 6 week adventure.
After contacting Kelly prior to my trip she agreed to allow me to shadow her one morning.
Usually I am not welcome with this ‘age group’ since the world thinks if you are over 50 your should be dead.
But Kelly was very receptive and we met on a street near the Spanish steps that is famous for past artist.
