This year, November has come to my town, a tad more furious than usual. It didn’t stop raining for what seemed an eternity. It seemed it wasn’t just us, who felt sick of the rain. Lake Maggiore went “on strike,” and demonstrated its discontent by coming out to the piazza! The beautiful sycamores I have painted (and are still a good source of inspiration) were under water, so was the bar I usually go to get my coffee fix!
