"The Allegra" is an original 22" x 30" mixed media painting on on handmade paper. This piece was created using a range of materials, including gouache, watercolor, wax pastel, and graphite.
Little did I know that taking a dip in Southern Italy's sea would send inspiration through my veins. The salty air, the crystal blue water, the old men with bellies stomping through the sandy beaches, flippers in tow, ready to dive into the blue. The women and children of all cultures playing in the tide pools, the various languages flowing through the air, the scalloped umbrellas strewn across the sand. The swimsuits! The cut and the styles forever making my wheels turn. The way of life & leisure. Let's go on "Holiday".....as the Europeans do.
