My trips to Italy and France have provided me with many pleasurable moments as I recall the trip’s experience while painting the beautiful scenery.  The light in these countries is amber in tone, laying a gentle glow on all that it touches.  I was fortunate that my visits occurred during the spring poppy bloom and I have been inspired since then to create the rich vibrant color in many of my paintings.
