#144 - Santa Maria Novella Courtyard

8" x 10" Oil on canvas panel

We were visiting Santa Maria Novella in Florence and the shadows thrown by Tuscan Cypress in the large cloister caught my eye. I am drawn to the organic shapes of the trees in front of the organized monastic architecture.

#143 - Tuscan Roadtrip

11" x 14" Oil on gessoed panel

One of my favorite experiences during a recent trip to Florence was the day we rented classic 50-year-old Fiat 500s and drove through Tuscany with other like minded souls. Our caravan consisted of 4 classic manual stick Fiats filled with people on vacation - a great time! This painting is from a picture Maureen took through the windshield.
