Montefollonico, Italy

A picture of the farmhouse where I stayed/worked near Montepulciano in Italy. Next week, I hope to be able to show more pictures, write about some fantastic adventures and show some paintings from my journal/sketchbook. This week, I have to hit the ground running with alot of freelance work for Disney.
That is Montepulciano in the left distance hill. This photo doesn't show how steep the road from the farmhouse to the village of Montefollonico is, which enabled me to eat and drink as much as I wanted as I certainly burned the calories.

High fire danger

I painted this a few weeks ago, before I was slammed with freelance work. I'm unable to post a weather entry, but the heading reads "high fire danger" which is obvious. This watercolor is not near as big a fire as the one currently happening near me. The 210 freeway out back is still shutdown. Watercolor on Arches.

Yoko Ono's Wish Trees

A shot of Yoko Ono's Wish Tree installation in Pasadena and some of my favorite wishes I found already tied on trees. The last one is a found wish for wc-fl. This art installation is very cool and very yoko. 21 Crepe myrtle trees.
