Welcome to my Art Blog! I paint or draw most weekdays and sometimes finish a painting a day. I fondly call them my "Postcards from Paradise" because it's such a beautiful place the Lord made here for us.

Good Views in Tuscany

After our stay near San Gimagnano, we drove the little rental car to another fascinating walled city on a hill, Casole d'Elsa in the Sienna Province. We explored the town, and found a hotel nearby with good views, good beds and off-season rates with breakfast included.

Our balcony view gave me opportunity to do some studies of the Tuscan landscape. This is the first one I did after we settled in to our room.
