10" x 12" oil on paper from the new Amalfi series. This scene is taken from a coking class we were a part of in the town of Amalfi. It was one of the best experiences we had on our trip. And what is more Italian than making pasta with an Italian mama? Throwing back a glass of Francis Ford Coppola and watching the Godfather, that's what. But I think this scene takes the cake on quintessential Italy.
These pieces are part of an experimental series where I revisited representational work and played with different styles and techniques. So many hours and love and care have gone into each painting, capturing the dreamy island feel of the coast of Italy. Each piece is different and is part of my process to keep my work fresh and do the work that speaks to me. Will I do a series like this again soon? I'm not sure!! I just have to keep painting the images that keep me alive. Who knows what's coming next!
