This is a studio painting from sketches and photographs taken while looking over rooftops from Cesi to distant hill towns, after studying the pattern of geometric shapes made by the sunlight on rooftops. This is one of my favorite images of Italy, because it is so ubiquitous; it seems that everywhere you look from every hill town in Umbria, you are looking at patterns of geometric shapes, made by manmade structures and land masses against an overcast sky.
