At my destination, I search for views for dramatic compositions with patterns of sunlight and shade, shapes, space and drama. I paint fragile gardens in Pompeii, Venice, Rome and Lake Como. Chiaroscuro makes a garden: In early morning, cypress trees cast dark shadows on sun-drenched lawns. Afternoon best suits a villa at Lake Como when the intense sun hides behind a loggia and shines on the water.
