Castelfranco, Florence, Italy VII

Piece description from the artist

This original painting is a mediterranean scene from the town of Castelfranco, near Florence in the Tuscany region of Italy. It shows a welcoming park bench next to an olive orchard lit by a late afternoon sun. It also features hand scripted Italian poetry from a love sonnet written in 1327, called Rime in vita e morta di Madonna Laura. It translates to:

"It was the day the sun's ray had turned pale
with pity for the suffering of his Maker
when I was caught, and I put up no fight,
my lady, for your lovely eyes had bound me.
It seemed no time to be
on guard against Love's blows."
