A Caprice with a Ruined Arch
by Francesco Guardi – Italian (from Venice), 1712-1793
From the National Gallery of Art, London
When I posted the March Challenge, I didn’t know that I would get home from a sibling reunion just a few hours before a “shelter-in-place” decree would go into effect, or that, by mid-March I would be wondering if our 2020 cousin reunion would take place later this year, or have to be canceled. I was still hoping to attend an informal class reunion on Memorial Day Weekend. And now many of us are looking forward to reunion with loved ones sheltering in different places. I’m wondering when my granddaughter from Arkansas can come visit us without risk to herself or to us—a visit postponed as a result of the pandemic.
