I rode around Tuscany in the back seat of a Skoda for 4 days last month. I stared out at the most beautiful countryside I have every seen. Aside from my daughter's face when she was born and my husband anytime, I think the Tuscan landscape this Spring ranks right up there. For a few days after I returned home I tried to make a painting using the various greens I had stored in my visual memory before they faded away and were replaced by visions of my Sacramento landscape. Here is a painting I did in the first few days after I returned. What do you think? I think I want to paint simpler and bigger images.
