Via Labrinto, Syracuse, Sicily, 10 x 8 in., oil on linen

Here is a a view on Ortygia island in the city of Syracuse, Sicily. Via Labrinto (Italian for  Labrynith Way) was a beautiful winding street that rewarded me with surprising architecture.

Syracuse is a pleasant place, very cleaned up compared to most of Italy. It is also the home to Caravaggio’s Saint Lucy painting which is worth a trip by itself.  Syracuse  was once described by Cicero as “the greatest Greek city and the most beautiful of them all.”

If you are interested in seeing artwork I have for sale or auction take a look at my daily painting blog here or at my auction interface here.
