MARCO VERGONI - A life on the tip of a pencil

Jan 31, 2015, yesterday at the Borsa Merci of Perugia, a very large and important exhibition was presented of the work of friend of many years, MARCO VERGONI -- artist, illustrator, humorist, cartoonist, and also sculpture of curious paper mache sculptures, an artist of many talents, and unfortunately a friend we have lost one year ago.

Here are several of the images of the opening of the exhibition, as well as many friends, including collaborators of Marco's, in the art field.

The exhibition continues for the next two weeks, and will include the commemoration of Marco's death on February 10, with poetry, music and friends and public alike joining in remembering Marco.

The best way to know who I am is to see what I create. Take a look at this blog or my other one regarding my art.

LOVE the double or triple image maker on my Nikon D80. Just set it, and then take two or three pics.

What's the weather like now in Perugia?

Cold one day, sunny the next. Cold in the house. But we still need our coats or lightweight ones or padded jackets outside. Chilly, and not sunny. I like it like this, no problem for me.
