For Lanfranco

For Lanfranco

My dear friend from the Dolomites of Italy, Lanfanco (, kind offered another of his photos for me to sketch.

I chose this one of Lavaze not only for the beauty of the mountains, but I was so attracted to those wildlfowers!!! I've painted this scene to emphasize the flowers -- but if I paint it again, I may emphasize that wonderful water.

Please see ( for the original.

Lanfranco's wonderful photography never fails to inspire me! --- Many thanks, mi caro!!!! I hope you like it!

Lin-this is so beautiful-as is everything you have posted in the past few days. I am behind reading blogger posts and emails-by the hundreds due to the storms!!! With the 90 degree heat that will keep me in, I should get caught up!!
hugs, chris

Oh how gorgeous! I just love the tall pink against the darker mountains in the background. And the flowers really do look like they are waving in the breeze. Bravo!

Glad your a/c is working again. This is lovely!! I like the wildflowers too, and the water sparkling behind them is a nice touch. Love the mountains in the background too.

It certainly looks like a lovely place.

I like it like this Lin...the water does actually get accentuated by the wildflowers in front.It is like Joan said...the water sparkles behind the flowers.
