Product description:Portrait of an Italian "nonna" (grandmother). Fiorella is an elderly Tuscan living near Montepulciano. In Italy the title might be "Il Ritratto di vecchia" (portrait of an old lady). The colors are pastel. I use a 19th century Italian painting style known as "dal vero" (after life) which is informed by "verismo" (truth, verism) in painting (a kind of poetic realism). The brushwork is bold and descriptive, that is, done with attention to the painting surface textures produced by the brushstrokes.
