Historically, I used to do a lot more on-site outdoor painting. This was done while teaching a course in Italy near Florence. I developed a love for the olive groves, and cypress trees that marched across the landscape, and was experimenting with water-based oil paints for portability.
This little piece will want to be mounted or framed somehow. Shipped flat.
