Italian Memories 1
encaustic on cradled board
A group of observations regarding the sheer physical beauty, the brightness, the fields of poppies and sunflowers, grains and grasslands of Italy. The grapes growing each year...the lovely gardens tended to so lovingly. People never told me how beautiful the landscape was...I was enamored with Michelangelo, Leonardo and Caravaggio...Italy has lured me time and time again...and will remain in my heart always.
