Tuscany...oh Tuscany...

Have you ever been to Tuscany? Have you ever  tasted the food from the Tuscan earth?
Have you ever driven over one hill and seen another painting just waiting for you through your windshield (windscreen)?
Smelt the grasses and lavender...seen the old farmhouses surrounded by Olive groves?
Spent the night at an Agriturismo where they have served wild bore for dinner?
Been to villages built on hillsides filled with history and Art...
If you haven't...please try and make it there once in your Life...if you have, then you would know the reason why I would JUMP at the chance to paint a Tuscan Scene...
I will be presenting this final sketch to the client...if accepted it will be painted on three canvases.

HAVE A WONDERFUL MONDAY!!!

Yes, I've been to Tuscany-and know about agriturismo-tho' I've not tasted wild boar!

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! You make me want to go there even more than I did before, if that is possible.

Hope your weekend is a good one.

The three images look great together...and thank you, my first day at college went ok...just a bit scared by how good everyone else seems to be - I will have to work very hard to match the standard!

Yes! Yes! YES! to all of the above! F. once took me to Tuscany for a couple of days to celebrate an anniversary & it was just heavenly!
And now he was just saying the other day that when my parents retire (which might be in a year or two...), he wants to convince them to go on a nice long holiday in Tuscany with us... which would be truly and utterly fantastic!

Oh, if only Tuscany was closer by... we are now in the northern region at the border with Austria, so Tuscany is about 500 km. away... But your beautiful sketches sure make it feel a lot closer! They look great! (And I love the idea of a tryptich...)

*hearts*
& have fun with this exciting new project!
