The Story Behind the Art
The Patio By Giorgio

Limited Edition Giclee’s Available
The inspiration for my painting “The Patio” was the backyard of a home I visited in Tuscany. I was walking down a path and came across a home that had a lot of character. As I took out my camera to take a photo, the homeowner walked out the front door and approached me. I greeted her as I pulled out one of my business cards. I introduced my wife and myself to her and told her that I was an artist from America traveling through Italy. I then asked if she would be kind enough to allow me to take a reference photo of her beautiful home for a possible future painting. She seemed delighted and invited us into her yard where she led us around to a lush green and spacious backyard. She invited us to sit at her table under a vine covered patio and kindly treated us to some Tuscan wine, grapes, cheese and enjoyable conversation. My painting “The Patio” depicts the beautiful and charming patio we enjoyed that warm September afternoon.
There is beauty to be found all around us when we are open to it. Both in the people we encounter throughout life and in settings that leave warm memories within us.
