Farm House

Pin It

Farm House
I started this painting with my friend James Pratt at Bacco Restaurant
here in Charleston last week. We had a group of us painting together and
enjoying a fabulous Italian lunch!
Unfortunately, I didn't have enough time to finish my Alla Prima
painting there so I brought it home and finished it in my studio. 
Made a few changes and gave it a little pop.
A simple scene yet so warm and inviting.
Don't you think?

Tuscan Farm

Pin It

Tuscan Farm
A typical scene from Tuscany! Along the roads, there will be hill
after hill with farm houses after farm houses and
vineyards after vineyards!
Rolling hills, vineyards and wild flowers....
all for good wine! 
And cheese!
And breads!
And 5 lbs!

I just love these little birds. Royal Terns.
And they do have a royal attitude!
I've painted several scenes similar to this before
but this composition is one of my favorites!
