|" Road to the Vineyard" Oil on Canvas cm 25x35|
Sometimes people from abroad ask me weather I ever get tired of living in Tuscany, or get used to all the beauty around me. They smile when I answer that I probably wouldn't get tired in a hundred years.
I think being painters also means being able to appreciate what surrounds us in a special way and feeling the need of observing our environment more accurately, in order to communicate what strikes our attention most.
In today's painting you can see a spot I've been wanting to paint for ages. I drive past it very often and it is right off the main road that goes all the way through the Chianti Classico area. From the crest of the little road one can enjoy one of the most exquisite views of the famous wine area, overlooking miles and miles of vineyards, woodland and olive groves.
