This the third painting I have done of this tiny cottage in Bagno Vignoni. While painting the side view, this cat appeard to sit at the gate. I took its picture and now it is painted in watercolor. He/she is looking back at the woman who just chased it out of the yard.

This beautiful window was captured in Positano on the Amalfi Coast in Italy. We wanted to park our bodies there and stay.
This is a watercolor.

I hope this is the corrected cat; Poor thing has been sitting in this basket for too long. She is free to go now.

This Cortona, Italy alley was very difficult to climb; yet, residents lived all along the steps. I took many reference photos of this interesting place. The actual painting is taller and seems more narrow than this photo. We will have to adjust that.
Ideas for titles are welcome: Going Up.... or Up, Up and Home....???
