This body of work was created both in plein air and in the studio. My journey started in Rome, then moved to the Puglia area, and concluded in Sorrento. In Rome, I was struck by the beauty of the Borghese Gardens. Puglia was awe inspiring. With some of the oldest olive trees in the world, the shapes and textures provide infinite possibilities for painting. Sorrento is an incredible coastal cliff town that plays on the senses and makes the brushes move almost effortlessly across the paper and canvas. These pieces are expressive landscapes, capturing the moment with paint.”
