Breathtaking View Autumn in Tuscany

Draped in lush Meadow Green and fresh air, this oil painting captures a beautiful vista near the village of Volpaia. A 16th century village nestled on a hilltop, now home to a small winery Volpaia is surrounded by inspiring vineyards. Visiting twice, Dorothy was inspired by the change of seasons from early September to  late October. Just a few short weeks shifted the colors. Taking in home cooked soup in the outdoor cafe perched on the Volpaia hillside, she drank in inspiration.

"The first time I visited Volpaia, the sun was in and out behind clouds. Returning a few weeks later for lunch with friends, we were thrilled to feel the warmth of autumn sunshine in the garden cafe.

Not always knowing what she wants to say with an inspiration when it first strikes her, Dorothy's process of teasing it out includes using emotions to discover colors for her painting. Unlike linear planning, this process leap frogs a path to unexpected places. This painting is an example, as her first inspiration was a villa and two cypress trees in the middle field ~ now painted out. Instead ~ following the Spirit of the painting, inspiration now flows from the top of the mountain where it meets the clouds, back into the heart of the rich valley. 

"This painting feels like soaring like a bird. I smell the air, feel it lifting me and the warmth of the sun."
