I Melograni del Chianti—wine jugs

Tucked away in corners the Tuscan villa where we stayed last fall (I Melograni del Chianti) were all sorts of unusual treasures to us New Englanders—various oversized wine jugs and enormous terra cotta vases planted with flowers—but they are oh so ubiquitous in Italy. The baskets encasing these old wine jugs were falling apart and looked interesting against the colorful stone wall at sunset, so I couldn't resist painting them. (Oil on canvas, 8" x 10.")
