Tuscan Landscape

This original oil is not based on a real place, but rather one I created in my mind. It captures some of the elements of the Tuscan landscape that I saw when visiting there in 2007, but also includes elements that are more dreamy.

It tells the story of two people enjoying a casual bike ride through the country, stopping as they passed the vineyard to take in the scenery and pick some sunflowers, keeping a watchful eye on the rainstorm forming in the distance. They are intrigued by the villa on the hill, and perhaps they've walked up to meet its owners.  It is meant to convey an imaginary place and time, but with the feeling of an ancient memory.
