Just North of Rome - George Wittenberg is pleased to share with you the musings of artist George Wittenberg from his travels to Italy this summer. Also, for a limited time --now until November offers George's latest original artworks from Italy. To see this special collection click here.

"We began our trip, badly jetlagged, by chugging up in a local train to this small Umbrian hill town north of Rome. We were visiting a friend who lives near this special city packed with architectural treats. One beautiful building after another makes up a city famous for its urban form - sequences of piazzas and vistas onto the countryside below. It was cool and rainy that day (a welcome relief from the hot USA summer) so I painted this church facade quickly between thunderstorms. Filtered sun washed across the painted stucco and stained glass at just the right moment to reveal their colors. "
