Under the Tuscan Sun
This is a selection of plein air paintings inspired by the beautiful countryside at Bagno a Ripoli just outside of Florence in May 2016,
The light in northern Italy is spectacular, the people relaxed and friendly and the food and wine are just fantastic. Many readers will recognise the scenes which are typical of this popular destination. The title of the exhibition, 'Under the Tuscan Sun' is from the well-known book and movie about someone who chose to begin a new life in this idyllic landscape. On this visit, I met two courageous American artists who had similarly decided to sell up and start a new life here. It isn't hard to see why. Carpe diem!
