"Uphill into Light" Original Oil Painting 12" x 16" Italian Medieval Gate

Price: $1,100.00

Size: 12x16

Medieval gateway in Orvieto, Italy. View uphill through the Porta Postierla to the city of Orvieto. To the right is the wall of the Fortezza Albernoz. The Fortezza was altered a number of times over the centuries. Now it provides great views and picnicing spots near the Funicolare which shuttles tourists up and down the volcanic plateau from the train station to the medieval hill town of Orvieto. ⁠

This painting and the others in the series are a metaphor for memory and hope - looking through to what we hope for the future, as well as the way past memories many times seem brighter in retrospect. 

12" x 16" "Uphill into Light". Oil on Canvas. Signed by the artist. Framed in a handcrafted wood floater frame painted a neutral color to complement the painting. Wired and ready to hang.
