“Vernazza, Cinque Terre, Italy”
Cinque Terre or “Five Lands” is a rugged portion of coast on the Italian Riviera. It is in the region of Liguria, in the northwest of Italy. These villages still give a true sense of how Europe was before the automobile as paths, trains, and boats connect the villages, and cars cannot reach them from the outside. The fishing village of Vernazza, founded in 1000 AD is the subject of this painting as seen from high above. The nearby terraced slopes nurture vineyards and olive orchards. Pastel-hued houses and shops line narrow alleyways that meander down to the main street, which opens into a small square and Santa Margherita d’Antichia church by the harbor that is filled with fishing vessels. Cinque Terre is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
This painting was done from research done by the artist in Italy during July 2018.
