"Lone Ruin"
Watercolor, 2020

My husband and I visited Pompei on a trip to the Amalfi coast in January of 2011. It was a beautiful crisp day with a blue sky, and scattered cirrus clouds. I painted two of the scenes from my pictures that reminded me of the amazing ruins and the incredible ability of the society tha once inhabited Pompei. This painting depicts the eerie feeling I had observing the remains of the city that was once a beautifully constructed magnificent civilization.
