Wine Bottles and Flowers LaRomita

Travel Sketchbook
Plein Air
La Romita, Terni, Italy

Of course, I had to try to capture that magnificent courtyard garden!! I sketched this plein air while sitting in the courtyard and painted it plein air with finishing touches in the studio. It's a little lighter in person than scanned.

I just LOVE those old wine bottles!!! I believe they were specially made for La Romita.

Charles and I went to a small jazz festival yesterday. Oxford has built an amphitheatre at its new athletic park, and we spent several hours there yesterday walking the incredibly well-maintained trails, listening to music and enjoying the coolness of an overcast day. Mighty relaxing!
