Pienza Balcony

Pienza Balcony
9 x 12 Oil Painting

I've culled down over 1300 photo's from my recent trip to Italy and I've selected some favorites to begin a new series. Probably no surprise, I love scenes that depict light and shadow and love plants with flowers that add a pop of color agains all the neutral stonework typical in Italian architecture.

This scene is from a charming little town Pienza.


  1. I choose scenes for the same reason...light, shadow, pops of color. I look forward to your new series from your trip to Italy. The light and shadow on "Pienza Balcony" is charming for exactly the reasons you chose!

    1. Thanks Carol. Appreciate your comments. More to come soon!
