I always thought this church in Shadyside was interesting. I liked the contrast between the warm colors of the stone and roof with the cool colors of the surrounding streets and hills. Oil on 6"h x 8"w stretched linen.

My husband and I spent the night in Pittsburgh for New Year's Eve and were fortunate to wake up to a sunny New Year's Day. We took a walk downtown along the river where I snapped some photos. This is a study of the Andy Warhol Bridge.
This is a view of the hills surrounding Florence, Italy from Piazza Michelangelo. I know it doesn't look real, but it looked that way in real life. I guess it doesn't look real to me because of the umbrella pine and cypress trees, which are completely different from the trees we have in Pennsylvania. Add a fortress wall and a Tuscan villa, and it looks like a made-up scene. But it isn't made up, it really exists in Italy! SOLD.
