This studio painting was inspired by our trip to Tuscany in 2018. The view is from a small bridge that arches across the headwaters of the Arno in the little village of Stia. The mountainous terrain, texture, and light was what caught my eye that late afternoon. I painted this during our quarantine and feeling sympathetic for the people in Italy. This painting took me for a trip to a happier time, a remembrance of a place I hope to return to one day.
