I created Adriatic Afternoon on a hazy spring afternoon during a stay high on a cliff above the tiny town of Portonovo on the Marches coast of Italy. I imagined seeing ancient Phoenicians rowing their galleys over the mist-shrouded horizon.

The strong swirls of reds and blues welcome you into a land of myth and magic.
