"Under the Tuscan Sun…." SOLD

“Under the Tuscan Sun…..”

oil, 6 x6in on canvas panel

What is it about Italy that sets us off? Could it be the homemade mozzarella? The abundance of good wines served at every meal? Incredible art? Statue of David? The staggering oldness of it all?? The graciousness of the lives we see hinted at with every curtain moving in the breeze, every scented splash of color hanging from a balcony?

Maybe it’s only the gelato. That would be enough…:)

Another slice of Italy served up for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy~


Enquiring minds want to know. Or then again—maybe you can’t handle the truth. My interview with Daily Painters has hit the stands—click here to go to the Daily Painters website and check out the DP cafe link at the top of the page (you’ll see a photo of me). I am the second interview on the page. Feel free to leave a comment. Just remember—I will be reading them and I know where you live….and if I don’t I soon will. It’s the Internet. There are no secrets.

Also, Gallery B has begged me to come in on Saturday, March the 20th, and chat about my inspiration for my show, “Let There Be Love…..”. I will be there from around 1-3 to tell my story. I know that everyone of you now reading this will be there. Even if it means you have to fly in for it. And because of your extreme loyalty I felt the least I could do was to have a drawing for a small painting created specifically for this occasion to be given away at 3pm that day. Only those who have purchased a painting from the show at Gallery B and those in attendance (they are hauling in the red ropes for crowd control as we speak) will be eligible. I may have exaggerated when I said that Megan at Gallery B had begged me….but everything else is true….except for the red rope part. Okay, nothing is true except I will be talking at 1:30 and giving away a painting at 3 pm.
I only promise to entertain you here on the ole blog–I never said anything about telling the truth. Even if I had, it would most certainly have been a lie.

    You are a hoot! Loved your interview and your “lies.” Wish I could be in Paris and share in your experience at the gallery. Being a highly sought after celebrity is hard work. You are handling it quite well.

    Oh, and by the way, I love your Tuscan painting! Visiting in the morning and seeing beautiful colors, joyous brush strokes and happy subjects makes me smile!ReplyCancel

    Great painting AGAIN!!!! For me..the beauty of Italy lies in the people…such depth and culture to them, the lighting..something about the sunlight, the pigments in the soil…that transcend into to all all the structures and landscapes…the architecture…just adore looking and capturing the doorways and window boxes..and the Italian have a knack making even the simple things, like entry ways, look colorful and pretty.ReplyCancel

  • Tammy Hext - March 5, 2010 - 8:56 am

    Another gorgeous painting I wish I could just walk into it. I read your interview – it is fantastic. Way to go.ReplyCancel
