In my painting wide green fields typical of Tuscan farmland lead to the cozy village of Tassignano and its church.
La Chiesa di San Stefano Protomartire has an impressive dome which I painted with real turquoise. Its elegant campanile looks over the fields.
In the distance, the Carrara mountains form a blue violet backdrop to the red tile roofs and stone buildings. These mountains have been famous for their marble quarries since antiquity.
The buildings are a rural architectural style unique to the area around Lucca called Corte Lucchese.
On the left, a row of flowering white trees shows it is the beginning of spring.
On the right, a row of cypress trees lines the freshly ploughed field leading back to a stone wall with two turquoise gates.
