Alberto Valentini schildert geboorteplaats in Italië

San Vincenzo Vecchio (AQ), Italie

oil on canvas
60 x 70 cm
painted on location - Mon 15 Nov 2010

Private collection - Sora(FR), Italy
As some of you may have known I made a short excursion to my home town in Italy. With the idea of witnessing and lending a hand, in the olive picking festivities. I must say, as luck would have it, I ended up at an ideal location. I was hosted by a cousin who has a 2nd home in the village shown on this painting. Nestled in a picturesque gentle mountainous valley, with autumn colors still in full splendour, and temperatures reaching will over 20% Celsius, il pittore didn't need much convincing to set his easel up in a field above this olive grove!  This is the 1st of 3 paintings produced in this region of Abruzzo ( about 125 klm S/E of Rome).  Unfortunately we had some rain, thus limiting my production.
