My second painting is "Tuscany", which is a compliment to "Topiary"
To qualify: Comment on at least 10 out of 30 paintings this month, and that's it. I will mail the print (of your choice) from my Etsy shop at the end of the month. Happy New Year!

I love this Tuscany painting. Now, I'm having a hard time choosing what I like best as my prize. Hahaha! I'm just thinking wishfully, just in case.

watching the morning unfold..
softly sunshine warms the morning..

Beautiful details in the foreground area - the stone wall, the flowers, I feel like I'm sitting on the terrace looking out at the view with my morning coffee.

Beautiful countryside!

RHCarpenter said...

Something different than what you normally paint, but it's really lovely and I can sense the warmth - I like the idea of coffee on the terrace in the morning :)

Wow-your Tuscany painting is gorgous-the colors are beautiful-you are making me take a walk through the Italian countryside.

Oh my goodness, I love this one. I went to Italy and this view looks so similar to the view I saw when in Occiato (spelling is terrible).

Intriguing how the homes set into the mountainside parallel the flowerpots on the ledge ... both human bits of ornamentation and presence on the landscape.

This is lovely. I only got to visit Tuscany for a few days, but it was a gorgeous part of the country.

Sigh...brings me back to my semester abroad in Florence in 2006! You capture Tuscany perfectly :)

I feel like I've just been dropped right into the middle of Tuscany :-) Love the planters of red flowers along the wall. I feel like I'm standing right there looking out towards the bright yellow & orange houses :-)
