Online Art Sale Today!


Tuscan Sunrise

Tuscan Sunrise

This weekend I will be taking part in the Stinking Fish Fall Show, a two day event that I have been madly preparing for. In gratitude to all my online supporters, I am having an online pre-show and sale through my Facebook page.

The first piece on offer is this little gem, Tuscan Sunrise. It is a 5×5 photo etching mounted on board, with sides painted and waxed all around. This was the view out my window in the little town of Pancole that greeted me early one morning last spring when I was travelling in Italy. The vineyards and distant hills were awash in mist with little glints of sunshine peeping through to light up the scene. I was staying at Cesani Agriturismo, a little azienda that made its own olive oil and saffron. Both were luscious and used up all too soon. Time to head back? Side view is below.

This little ray of sunshine is offered today only at $50. Post here or contact me at chiarina@chiarina.com if you would like to take it into your home.

Check out my Facebook Page for all further offers throughout the day.

Have yourselves a wonderful weekend full of sunshine!

Fall’s First Wet Kiss

As the first wet day of fall rolls in I am tempted to look back on these glorious summer days when the fog rolled in but didn’t eclipse the sun (at least for too long). More pics here.

Photo Friday – Botanical Beauty

One of my favorite beaches to visit on the island is Botanical Beach and it’s extension, Botany Bay. With it’s unusual geological structure, it houses a vast assortment of sealife.  At low tide it is possible to walk along the sandstone to see the myriad tidepools that have been carved out over time by natural forces. The one below has a lovely heart shape.

You can also walk all the way North to Botany Bay which is lined with black compacted layers of shale, quartz and basalt that jut up at sharp angles.

I was up there this past Sunday and got to photograph this slendid jewel not only at low tide but with some amazing fog conditions. The one below is one of my favorite photos from the day.

Did I mention it has some awesome Saurian shaped driftwood too?
