Italian Ladies


 Mixed Media/Fiber   60″ W x 48″ L

I first saw the Italian ladies sitting in a courtyard in Piegaro, Italy.  They are lifelong friends, and I was fascinated with their demeanor and their faces.  Their closeness was a mirror for me; it served as mirror for all of us to reflect on our own deep friendships.    The muted colors of stone, growing vines, and the three arches helps emphasizes the women themselves. The focus is on the women as they are waiting for the bells that announce Saturday night mass and the dinner with their grandchildren at the local “osteria” afterwards.       Sold
