I found my self admiring the clean lines of and it’s stunning red /cubole/ (domes), always thinking “I need to find the time to paint this.”
La Chiesa di San Cataldo stands serenely on Piazza Bellini. Its formidable stone walls have weathered almost 1000 years. With blind arches etching graceful patterns in its walls and airy windows veiled with filigree filtering light into the interior.
The name Piazza Bellini commemorates the achievements of composer Vincenzo Bellini, “the Swan of Catania” who became known for his operatic masterpieces.
In my painting, the ornate church on the right is Chiesa di San Cataldo. It is a Unesco World Heritage Site and part of a network of architectural gems constructed in the Arab-Norman style.
Teatro Bellini is in the center, just past the chiesa. Named to honor the romantic composer.
There is a café just in front of the teatro.
Palm trees in front of and around the chiesa show the bright, balmy climate.
People stroll through the piazza enjoying the wonderful view.
