I am from the Bay Area, specifically Oakland, CA. I work part time at Nob Hill in the deli, which is a grocery store in Alameda. Studying abroad is important to me because I want to experience seeing the world. I am majoring in Psychology. I like to be outside and enjoy hiking with friends and family. I also like taking pictures, especially of nature. I believe seeing and studying new places makes you a well rounded person. This study abroad in Italy would not be possible if it were not for the donors, so thank you again.

    Compare the David of Donatello and the David of Verrocchio, which one do you like most and why?
    The David of Donatello is much more sensual. The sword of David is longer than usual, and if you look closely, his feet are playing with the hair in a weird and playful way. The stature of David is feminine, and not very strong looking. His wrist is on his hip in a feminine way as well. His hat looks like a gardening hat instead of battle armor. I do not really like this sculpture as much as Verrocchio’s David.
    Verrocchio’s David is still boyish but not as feminine. He has a youthful face with culy hair. His facial expression is relaxed after a battle. He also has his hand on his hip, but it does not look as odd. His sword is also shorter, and the head is at a reasonable distance not being toyed with. I think that this is more of an accurate depiction of David than Donatello’s.

    This is a close up of one of my favorite piece’s by Bernini, a Baroque artist. This statue is called, “The Rape of Persephone.” I love the detail that was put into the hands and arms in particular. The attention to detail is what makes me appreciate Bernini’s style so much.

    I have to say that I started to like sketching toward the end of the trip. I have a new appreciation for sketching. So this sketch was the last one I drew before leaving. It depicts the outside of my room when staying at the convent.
