Always awe-inspiriting, the Roman Colosseum has a history rooted in spectacle and great cruelty.
Rome’s Colosseum (Wikipedia link) never ceases to inspire me, while also causing me to reflect on the infamous spectacles that were housed in such a marvel of architectural accomplishment. Over time, I plan to do a series of the Colosseum with my photography – with different angles, different lightling. For me it will be a challenge of altering my perspective and seeing what presents itself. Check out this an other photography and paintings in my online gallery.
I’m happy to share my recently completed watercolor. I’ve entitled it “Resolute” because this portrays the fortitude of my dear neighbor in our little hamlet in Umbria. She is the matriarch of the neighborhood, and she works harder than almost anyone I know. She’s pushing 80, but everyday she is up early to tend to her chickens, do laundry, work in the garden, clear debris, and cook for her son and other family. She is incredibly kind and always welcomes us into her home. Visit my online gallery for more watercolors and other artwork and photography.
