Tuscan fields

Welcome to my new virtual studio. I am setting out to be an artist in the truest sense. Here will be all my completed works on view. So, welcome all art lovers.

Here is my first piece, a scene from Tuscany, somewhere between Siena and Montepulciano, from a trip last year in November. It was a brisk day and the last bits of light were cast between the shadows of the clouds on the hillsides in warm tuscan colors. I hope you enjoy viewing my work.

Please feel free to leave comments, and welcome to all artists and collectors.

Hey Larry,

I am so glad that are doing this! Good for you!

This is a great painting to start things out. I love the plein aire feel to it. It has that romantic touch.

You should do well in your new adventure!
