I wanted to have another go at this scene, painting on canvas vs. panel makes a world of difference!

Bluffs Path - 8x10

I really love living so close to the bluffs, can there be a better place to take a stroll?

All I wanted to do was paint this gorgeous yellow sky, but all those telephone poles and trees got in the way :)

Autumn in Carpinteria - 6x12

I'm not usually a fan of fog, but since we had such a beautiful sunny summer these last couple days of clouds and rain are a welcome autumn change :) It's making me feel like we actually have seasons! It also makes me want to eat candy corn...

Something about early mornings in Carp just make me happy.  Now if only I was more disciplined to wake up and enjoy them every day.

Night in Florence - 5x7

I've been waiting all day to post this! Our power has been out since early this morning, and everything on my do to list today required electricity, so happy it's back on!

When in Rome - 5x7

I'm particularly fond of how this piece turned out.  Late afternoon sun on pavement is always fun to paint.

Avocado on Purple - 6x6

Day 2 of Avo Fest! Crazy how our little town comes alive. Also kind of ironic that I need an avocado for dinner tonight and I'm somehow without one!

Along the Arno - 5x7

Had to stand in the middle of a pretty busy street to grab this shot, but it was worth it.  The sun was perfect, I couldn't pass it up.

Florence Lights - 6x6

Wouldn't it have been nice if this was actually how this scene looked, but I think I edited about 300 people out of it.  Florence seems to be the Disneyland of Italy :)

I think I must have drove Zach nuts stopping to photograph every pretty much every alleyway we passed.  I couldn't help it :)
