All ACEOs are size 3.5 x 2.5 inches (the dimension of a playing card). ACEOs can also be called miniatures.This is a miniaturized version of a larger painting I have done a few months ago.

A month in Italy

It is time for my annual trip to Italy! Tuscany will be my first stop and Florence where I will stay, at my friend apartment in the hearth of the city. We intend to see the surrounding countryside. Last year we went to Siena and visited the surrounding small towns of Pienza, Certaldo, Monteriggioni,Montepulciano, San Gimignano...wonderful towns,wonderful countryside and wonderful food!
This year we will go toward Arezzo and surrounding area.
Then I will spend ten days in Sicily in an area between Palermo and Trapani.
A wonderful vacation but also and more important a great source of inspiration for my paintings. So..stay tuned. I will be back in a month with great Italian paintings, large and small.
