Lane at Villa Le Montanine


     It's been a while since my last post due to computer issues.  I downloaded a new operating system - Mavericks, for my Mac.  I didn't like it.  I suddenly could no longer use Painter Essentials, and for some reason I couldn't even get my scanner to work properly.  I took my computer to a professional to have him remove Mavericks and put back my old Snow Leopard system. I would like to update to one of the systems in between Snow Leopard and Mavericks but now I'm a bit nervous about it. Not having a computer for a week was frustrating, but I spent some time on some good old fashioned painting.  
     Here is a 12" x 16" oil on gesso board that I finished.  I had done a miniature 2" x 3" painting using the same image and I liked the way it looked so I went bigger.  I worked from a photo that I took in Italy this past October where my step-daughter got married.  This is the lane leading away from the villa where we all stayed. I haven't done very many landscapes but I'm happy with the way this one turned out.
