Haute Route – Swifts

Haute Route

On this recent trip to Europe we stay for a few days in Bellagio, Italy. In the evening the swallows and swifts would be flying over the tile rooftops catching insects, swooping and turning on a dime.  I never saw them run into anything.  I issued the stamp from Haute Route because I finished it in Switzerland and seeing the Alps I was reminded of the hike my son and I did 10 years ago across them.  I enjoyed using the legal stamps to illustrate the connection to the Alps.  The painting was done in lower value simple 2 colors because that is the way evening feels at Bellagio—
