Introducing Robbie Shackelford

If you’re like most people, you desperately need a painting of a Tuscan landscape hanging somewhere in your house or apartment. Fortunately, I know someone who can paint one for you!

My friend Robbie Shackelford has directed the Harding University in Florence program since the early 1990s. At various times in the last 25 years, I have spent many happy hours in the villa that houses the program on the outskirts of Florence.

In addition to leading tours, teaching courses, and fighting off the Italian bureaucracies, Robbie also paints. Earlier this month he launched a website to promote his work. I hope you will check it out (I will link to it permanently in the “Recommended Sites” section) and consider adding one of his works to your own art collection (you all have one, right?). As soon as he launches his affiliate program I’ll start demanding commissions from him and making millions, but until then I’ll be perfectly happy if you give his site some traffic!

    Do you know a way to connect with Robbie? I need a print and his website just says more coming, with no contact option. Thanks for any help.
