  • San Biagio Glory

    San Biagio Glory

    What a treat as Meredith Brooks Abbott and her son Robert painted to my left. After a little exchange of Courbet green for caput mortem (Robert is the only other person I know who bought that color, and he did it for the same reason I did--it's a great name!) we all got seriously down to intense work, as we knew we had limited time. Wyllis Heaton had given me a good hint on perspective, without which this building's tower would have toppled.

  • Tuscan Memories

    Tuscan Memories

    One last painting before we left the church nearest Spedalone. It had inspiring frescoes inside, and beautiful outbuildings. This was one of them, nestled in the cypress, with a vine along the side, surrounded by meadow grass speckled with spring wildflowers.

  • Tuscan Hills in Rain

    Tuscan Hills in Rain

    Rain showers blew in a few times on a trip to Tuscany recently, providing great clouds. Here, sunlight hitting a bright green newly planted field was irresistable.

    Etruscan Tuscany

    italian stone pines stood out against a white cliff and fields in the distance, beyond the green and gold fields, a range of mountains.

  • Tuscany Sketch Oil Rapunzels Tower

    Tuscany Sketch Oil Rapunzels Tower

    What to do with stone pines against a squat, awkward bulwark of a tower with fancy windows? Taking liberties, I stretched it high enough it could have housed Rapunzel.
