Cuore d'Italia ~ the Heart of Italy!

My time in Italy continues to influence my art and life in ways I'd never imagined. Setting up my easel on the balcony our flat in Poggio Alla Croce, I melted into the view of Florence. At sunrise I'd watch over Valdarno vineyards as they emerged from the mist. By harvest time, I felt that I too had ripened to greeting life with an Italian heart. 

In Italy I painted with oils and watercolors, and did many larger paintings in mixed media, oils, and pastels upon returning to Virginia. In all, you'll find inspiration from Tuscany to Venice, Cinque Terre to the Amalfi Coast and everywhere in between.
