Sleeping on it
I'm working on a series of oil paintings from last Spring's trip to Tuscany — Florence and Siena, to be specific. This painting, possibly probably finished, shows an architectural phenomenon that's common in ancient cities that need to upgrade their buildings structurally but also save the features that define them. I've chosen not to include any details of the ongoing construction here; rather, I wanted to showcase the wonderful arched window that remains more or less intact. More work from this trip in the near future.
