Painting Preview!

Sitting silently with a friend
amongst the rolling r's and foreign flavors;
Eyes made heavy by these long endeavors
as the day comes to a slow, slow end.

No one here knows my beginning
nor do they sing of my demise;
But as these long held issues arise,
Their eyes reveal my world is spinning.

Out of control, and back into it again
The illusion must not reassume its role;
I am the freed one, alone and then
Nothing else could make me whole.

Just a little poem I scribbled in my sketchbook while I was in Italy, and a photo preview of some of my paintings from the trip! I'll be posting high quality versions of these all very soon :)

Thumbnails/Painting Studies from Italy

Below are some studies / thumbnails that I did for paintings I did while I was in Italy. Yay!


So I just spent an amazing 2 months living in Italy for a study abroad program, and I thought I'd share some of the sketches that I did while I was there.

This was primarily a painting program, but we also kept sketchbooks along the way.

The town we were living in was called Corciano, a beautiful 500-year-old hilltop town near the city of Perugia. The experience was indescribable and these sketches don't do it justice, but hopefully they'll give you an idea of what we were surrounded by in this gorgeous place.

P.S. Paintings will be posted very soon!
