The LAST Italian painting

This is the last painting in the Italy show. It's a modest thing...but I noticed that I'm looser and freer w/ the paint than when I started. I've learned a lot from doing this exhibition.

There is much to be thankful for in executing such a show over the period of a year.

I learned tons about greens, and distance, and texture, and glaze. I find it completely energizing to paint in acrylic now.

But..... I am anxious to get going on the Everglades-- and to deal solely in watercolor for a while.

This is one of the only acrylics with sky and water. Well, except for the Arno paintings....


Will post the final painting later in the week.

Thank you Natividad! Happy New Year to you too.

Thanks Sandy, It's an inviting composition w/ sky/river. I like the expansion of green choice in colors. I've grown a lot. It is sad to move on from the show....but... Everglades awaits! Hope you are happy and good. HNY to one of the BEST ARTISTS I know!

What a trip this has been, Carol! I can't wait to see the show in 2011! (But I must admit, I'm anxiously waiting your return to watercolor and the Everglades :)
