Carrugi in Vernazza

Oil on canvas

Carrugi are just pathways up, down and through ancient Italian towns. Vernazza goes way back there in time, over a millennia. Many layers of civilization through all kinds of conditions. If only these walls, windows and doors could speak, what would we learn? In our time, they color their walls in awesome color, the paint fresh, peeling, plaster falling off, rock exposed, doors walled up, new ones opened. I focused on the color, light, surfaces, unexpected angles, and their interaction with each other.
