Como Holiday



I hafta tell ya, Lake Como is a very popular place on this planet and my paintings of it seem to be attracting a lot of attention these days too. When I've told people I'd been there they always seemed to ask if I'd seen George Clooney, so he has really helped put it on the map. I didn't see him, but I did see this heavenly vision at Varenna and never tire of painting this particular promontory in various ways. It's the majesty of the Swiss Alps reaching down toward the warm Italian architecture and creating a true visual feast. Sigh.
