Tuscany Vase

Original photo taken with iPhone 6.

If it wasn’t so tricky to drive in Tuscany I would spend every vacation in a four-wheeled vehicle driving through Italy. One needs to observe the rules of the road (different in the USA), and be aware of all the motor vehicle cameras. In between GPS directions and a lovely lunch at a monastery in Tuscany I captured a photo of this antique terra-cotta vase in the corner of the church where we had lunch. Tuscany is pure heaven for a painter and or a photographer. The light is gorgeous and around every corner is a photo just waiting for you and your camera. 

Watercolor/ Arches cold press/140 lb paper, 14×20.

Since I was little I liked to visualize and create things. Painting with watercolors is what makes me happy now. That, and spending time gardening and reading. I love long walks, biking, and the beach. Cape Cod is where I spend a lot of my leisure time.

    Good job! I like the evidence of brush strokes around the vase and the cracks are such a cool observation!
