ITALY

Since my first trip to Venice in 2005 I have been captured, as so many others have, by the magic of this city and the infinite subject matter.  I studied for 10 days with Australian watercolorist John Lovette who fundametally changed the way I paint.  I was fortunate to be able to return to Italy in 2011 for a wedding of a dear friend in Florence where I painted more plien air peices in the birthplace of the renaissance as well as some landscapes in Chianti.  I hope to be able to return to Italy and paint in the superb arid atmosphere. There is a vibrancy to plien air that studio work can't immitate.
