"Leaving Boboli" (6x8)

Sun & Shadow (9x12)

View of Ronciglione (9x12)

Lago di Vico and the Garden from the Terrace (16 x 20)

Garden Stakes(11 x 14)

The end of May is early Spring in the mountains north of Rome.  I arrived during iris and wisteria season just before Marcello roto-tilled the vegetable garden.  There were always blooming trees, bushes and flowers throughout my stay.

Springs Greens (9 x 12)

Walls with Wisteria (9x12)

The face that the villa presented to the world.

Villa and Garden (9x12)

This is the villa north of Rome where I spent 7 weeks last May & June.  The gardens were maintained to perfection by Marcello, who also made sure I had the things I needed for my stay.

"Bowlies" SOLD

"Late Night in the Old City" (18x24)

I decided that I felt prodded to do a large version of "Night in the Old City" because I liked 
the small version so much.  This is different in many ways, but feels like a good variation on a theme.

"Cafe Maspero" (14X19)

We ducked into Cafe Maspero to rest our feet and get a little refreshment on a drizzly afternoon in New Orleans.  Besides enjoying my companions, I loved the way the place looked with its open door and other people pausing in the middle of the afternoon.

"Addie" (16x20)

This is a portrait of a very special friend and companion of the man who commissioned the painting.  
I tried to capture her pent up energy and readiness for anything as well as the light she brings to his world.

Two of my paintings sold last night at the Wimberley Gallery Crawl

"Night in the Old City" (5x7)
This little painting is one of my favorites.  I may paint a larger version of it.

"Afternoon Wine" (8x10)
Another favorite.  I love to paint people engaged in daily activities, especially when they involve shared pleasures.
