I Primi


I have a thing about figs. I love them! Once when I was staying in Italy, I went to my local fruit vendor in Verona and saw a newly arrived box of beautiful figs. As I was standing there admiring them, a little Italian lady, also besmitten, looked up at me and said lovingly, “i primi,” which means “the first” in Italian. I had to buy some and then go home and record the event in my sketchbook.
