I did this painting as a copy of a gouache painting
that I did in a sketchbook that I had prepared to
show a group of students who were potential
participants in a workshop in Florence. The workshop
ended up getting cancelled for various reasons, but I
was so happy with the gouache painting that I did
another, larger version of it, and here it is.
I love the simplicity of Italian farm buildings. I remember
riding around in the country when I lived in Italy. I didn't
own a car, so that was a very rare treat. The most spectacular
thing was to see the fields covered with red poppies in the
spring. I'll never forget that. It was amazing. Italy has to be
one of the most beautiful places in the world.
