I set up my friends Bob and Susan with Aeronauts for their honeymoon trip to Italy. Their shared love of art (Bob was an amazing artist), good food (Susan is an amazing cook), and other cultures made Italy an obvious choice for a destination. Upon returning from their trip, Bob gave me a watercolor showing their two Aeronauts in front of a montage of noteworthy Italian sites: The Dolomites, Florence, Torino and Venice.

Sadly, Bob died in 2010. He left to Susan his journals, full of stories, art, and recollections. Bob isn’t the kind of guy you’d ever forget, but his journals help us remember him in fine detail. To celebrate Bob’s artistry, we are offering fine-art quality giclée prints of his “Aeronauts in Italy” watercolor. All proceeds from the sale of the poster will be donated to the Bob Boardman memorial scholarship at the Festival of American Fiddle Tunes.
