Relic



6 X 6 inch oil painting on canvas panel.

At the entrance to the small hilltop village of Cignano (pronounced Chin-ya-no) in Tuscany, I found this stone altar. With its small pot of flowers it greets anyone entering the village. Once inside the village there are pots overflowing with flowers outside every doorstep, along every patio and in every garden. It’s a beautiful place!

Reminder – You can see 2 of my paintings at the Small to Large Show.
