 16x20 Luncheon at the Villa


Stretched wrap around canvas painted  black on the sides, no need to frame, light varnish finish, gestural quality, painterly.
I painted this from my impressions of scenes I have seen in Italy, especially of Tuscany. The family is setting the table for the noontime meal, and in the distance are hills and valleys where grapes are grown.
