I tookÂ small breaksÂ during a big commission to work on the above painting of the Villa Monestero gardens (Varenna, Italy.) The villa is located in the Lake Como area of Italy where my husband Dave and I visited this past summer. The gardener was setting out new pots of flowers as we toured the garden. What to him might have seemed a haphazard arrangement made a nice composition to me! This piece measures 30" high by 24" tall. Not the best photo of this piece. I will try to reshoot it a little later on. I may work on it a little more but it's back to the commission for now!
More paintings of Italy can be seen on my website here.
