San Gottardo builds a church

Twenty-two degrees at 8:30am, with the sun shining and the wind, thankfully, no longer playing havoc with the windows and the washing. The first hibiscus are in flower.



Fresco, Chiesa di San Gottardo, Carmine Superiore
In a scene surprisingly similar to that which unfolded when we put a new granite roof on our house, San Gottardo overseas a church-building project, with a demon hanging ominously overhead.

Doing just fine, thanks, Will. Thanks for your recent comments. Yes they must have been a sight to see when they were first painted.
