My heart is broken...

My heart is so broken as I see these terrible pictures of my beloved Cinque Terre from the awful flooding that happened this week. All the villages were terribly flooded with mud, water and debris. My prayers go out to the people in Cinque Terre and surrounding Liguria area. I can't believe this is my beloved Vernazza's piazza by the Cathedral. Just shocking!
I am so upset and grief stricken...I cried my heart out when I saw these pictures....I cant beileve the terrible devastation to this magical, wonderful World Heritage site and coastline:

Vernazza Wip Update

Hi Everyone, Been working quite a bit on my Vernazza, Cinque Terre painting. Blocked in all the colour of the buildings and did some modeling work on the lower part of the cathedral. Will block in colour for the boats today and another coat to the buildings to refresh them up more. I am about at the half way mark of the painting. I am slowly seeing it come alive. Wishing you all a lovely day and week ahead and happy painting :)
