For a couple of years now, I have walked up a path not too far from my home in Tuscany. Each afternoon that I pass this little open patch in the forest, I thought, I will paint that some day, with the long shadows and the mixture of pine and olive trees.
And then it happened: My brother Michael was searching for a frame for one of my last remaining prints of my sold painting The Trumph of Icarus and instead found the one you see on this painting. It was too small for Icarus, but the image he sent me looked like a quality frame so I told him that I would paint something to fit that one. He bought it for me.
This painting is a warm monochrome... the main color is asphaltum [or rootbeer, as I like to think of it], with some white and even less black.
I paint the painting of this lovely scene and rolled the canvas up to get the artwork to Norfolk, Virginia. Enchanted Afternoon ~ Viepori is on exhibit at The Peninsula at Heritage Point in Norfolk. You may see it there, buy it outright or on a payment plan, as you wish. The framed work will ship from Norfolk unless you prefer to pick her up yourself.
