Chianti Vineyard


Italy is one of my favorite places in the world--mostly, I think, because I have some of my ancestry originating there, and still have relatives living in northern and southern Italy.  It is a place of great beauty and art.  A ride through Tuscany keeps my head turning side to side with the gorgeous scenery all around.  This pastel painting was done from a photo I took on a high road leaving a small Tuscan town.  I loved the sun striking the old stone buildings and touching the top areas of the grape vines.  I think there's even an olive tree or two in the scene.  Hope you enjoy viewing my reminder of the Tuscan hillsides.

Still Water

Still Water is a moody watercolor set in the evening as the light is beginning to wane.  This is framed in a simple dark brown frame, with a v-groove mat for added interest. 
Hope you enjoy this "quiet" piece.
