On The Way To Montepulciano

On The Way To
Day 1
acrylic on canvas
With olive trees, vineyards, and cypress this painting will have everything a Tuscan landscape can offer.
Today I just scrubbed color on to get my bearings. There is a lot going on in this landscape.
I realized something today when I was writing a friend about one of her paintings. The first four letters of painting; you cannot have painting without pain.
This little play on words has become a very real thing for me as of late. I have developed arthritis in my elbow and I am very worried about this.
This getting old thing is really getting old.
