Florence Biennalle and Memorable Friends
My immediate neighbour at the Florence Biennale was Brigitta Santagoeds from Holland.
Brigitta is a very accomplished artist. Her exhibition was three paintings one called Blue Tree 1, The Strong Tree, Blue Tree 2. Brigitta is warm, fun loving and intelligent. I was particularly impressed by the bond of friendship between the Dutch Artists. They had met in Holland prior to coming to Florence and rather than ship their work, they rented a truck and transported all the art work. Brigitta was the navigator/map reader and co driver of the truck. I look forward to meeting Brigitta at a future Biennale
