Paintings from Italy, Part 2

Cortona Cemetery, 2015, oil on linen mounted on panel, 9 x 12 inches
This is it, the last five painting from my trip to Italy in early June. I'm not sure what else I can say to add to the previous posts about Italy, only that looking at all these paintings makes me feel good and I can see some growth in my work.  I hope you enjoy looking at these as much as I enjoyed painting them.

First of all, I am SUPER late in catching up on my blog reading. So, sorry this has taken me a minute to get around to! But: these are all such soothing pictures. I especially love how the late light in the last one just gives me such a sense of peace & calm. I imagine that is something you took back from Italy with you! I hope just looking at these paintings helps you return to that mental place when you need a breather. :)

I could stare at these images for hours. Amazing work.
