Whispering waves fom the Quiet Beach

Back to my favourite painting location. On a day like this, not many people, but enough to have some decent interaction with. The beach cafes are all gone, now it's 100% nature on this stretch of sand and salty water. The colors of the water here are always fasinating, sometimes almost unbelievable, But all the locals know this, that's why they keep coming back.

Recently I went to visit with relatives in this quaint mountain village, in the Valle Roveto, Abruzzo, just a short 1hr drive from Rome. I make this trip annually to go help out with the olive picking season. Usually I take some equipment in order to keep busy with my art work. It was constantly raining in the period while visiting, as is evident in the paintings. However in between the rain showers I did get some chances to work in the field, as shown by the olive garden.
