Dusk in Italy

I finished this painting today .... it was a joy to work on.

I like it very much -- it adds a bit of dimension to the rest of the show.

I began another one.... 21 x 21. hopefully -- tomorrow's post will include the status it's in.

The work on Italy is going along as fast as possible. In no time -- I will be beginning the last 3 larger pieces.

Carol, I just saw a portfolio in "Pratique des Arts ". Few photos of your watercolors and a few words about you.
Do you know what is the name of the other magazine? May be I can have a look. Tell me if you have problem to receive this magazine... Have fun !!

Carol Carter said...

that may be the name of the magazine. is it the same publisher? i haven't heard from them... but they said two magazins would use the work. anyway, can you buy one and send to me? i will repay your time/expenses... best...

Don't worry Carol, I will go and by this one too.
It 's not a problem if the magazine is still available.
I will go and see tomorrow. It's time to go to sleep in France... See you...

I love this painting - the stark value contrast between the dark trees in the back and the pastel buildings almost gives the buildings the appearance of being lit - by perhaps neon.

i love your interpretation of the light in this painting barb. i think it look other-worldly too.
some times they work out easily -- some times they are more hard to come by.
