Benno has been a dear friend for a long while now. He is a retired architect living in Portland, Oregon, and has filled countless numbers of our books with his world travels for the last 14 years or so. Every year or two Benno loans us one of his completed journals to carry around with us to our shows…each is a masterpiece! They are an incredible example of what one can do with our books if so inclined! If you are inspired, but fear you don’t have the skills…why not take one of his watercolor courses that he teaches in Italy each year?….call us for more information or check out www.laromita.org.
