Val d'Orcia Storm. Oil on Linen Panel. 24" x 24".
This spring I met my daughter in Italy for a couple of weeks. It was stormy and beautiful. I thought it was a perfect time of year to be there and watch the skies, drink wine and eat robust, winter foods.

I don't normally paint images of my travels as I like to paint places I know well and that seem to be part of me. But I was already focused on painting storms and this is just one more.
