Beauty! Tuscany again? Looks like California in certain places at certain times of the year. . . and today ain't one of em. heh. Rain storm.

Love the impasto strokes and the indication of the type of flowery plants. Looks like it's viewed from a road cause we see them in their entirety.

Makes me want to travel again.

Thankz for the kind comment overall...

Well, it's not Tuscany, but very close: Umbria.
It's what you would call a flat "mesa", located between the "Sibillini Mountains", at 1400 meters on sea-level. It's famous for its very exclusive flowering (it comes randomly during a range of months from march to august). They produce there just biological "lentils" ( a DOC procuct, the very best of the world)... The zone is a "must see" for the ones who loves wild nature and for photography-addicted: I am both two 8)
If ever you will travel in Italy at the right moment (flowering) it worth a couple days visit... even because of the good food and wine you can taste To Castelluccio di Norcia, a beautiful place.

Oh stunning. That's a gorgeous place you've painted. I love the dramatic sky over the plains as well.
