WYD Lisbon 2023 and a Calendar.
So, I'm hoping to go to World Youth Day in Lisbon next year (2023) and at the present moment it is almost assuredly going to be a miracle of the Holy Spirit that my local diocese makes it happen/gets us there (long story not worth boring others about).
The pilgrimage route being taken by said diocese is effectively (for this artist at least) a "Grand Tour" through Italy, starting in Venice, then visiting places such as Bologna, Florence and Assisi to name a few, and staying in Rome for 3 nights, before flying to Portugal for the actual beginning of WYD week in Lisbon, at the start of August, 2023.
And to prepare/raise funds for the journey (and after much pulling of hair) I've been creating pictures based upon all the pilgrimage destinations for my 2023 Calendar (WYD Edition, as it were) for the past 2 fortnights or so.
Below is a brief selection of some "in progress" shots of finished work. I've still go 3–and–a–bit pictures/destinations to go.
Until next time, it's back to the grind stone for me. Bye.
