Arches in Arcadia

Original acrylic painting on masonite

Size: 16 x 20″

While sketching some ideas for a painting of a Tuscan villa, I was suddenly struck with the idea of what it would be like to look at a villa through a stand of trees. There were good possibilities for depth. But, as the painting developed, I also realized that I could make this painting about arches: the arched door, the arched gate, the arched foot bridge and the arches created by the crossed forms of the trees.

The arched foot bridge and the stream were added when I was almost finished with the painting.
