SPECIAL PROJECTS

Bird Page

What was at one time many different pages displaying some 470 bird species seen on different trips, is now better organized in this collection

The Renaissance Art Project

Research for our trip to Tuscany in 2005 led to the assembly of this page, covering developments in art from the 11th to 18th centuries. This period includes what is called 'The Renaissance', that occurred in both Italy and Northern Europe. The site provides brief biographies of 118 artists, including not only Leonardo Da Vinci, Titian and Michaelangelo, but others who made significant contributions to art during the period. Each bio shows the artists' better known works.

Caution! This site was originally the record of the hastily assembled notes and photos we compiled after our trips overseas while we were working. It was a motley collection, full of typos, incautious comments (unintentional slights rather than deliberate ones) and ragged organization. I have begun to tidy it up but it is a long job and far from complete. I have tried to avoid sameness on each page but the net result feels more like left-overs than delicious recipe.
