"You can't even say it's blue"

The Mediterranean has the color of mackerel, changeable I mean. You don't always know if it is green or violet, you can't even say it's blue, because the next moment the changing reflection has taken on a tint of rose or gray. Gogh, Vincent Van So take some blue sapphire and teal green..... Shake that up with a little lemon yellow...... Add azure, cobalt, turquoise and a few distant white sailboats ..... We searched the Amalfi Coast for a true representation of the colors of the Mediterranean in a small oil painting. Do you love it? My special painting has been framed and added to our "memories wall". There is still room for a few more trips!

I love it!
You found one with the perfect colors, those dad-gum steps, the boats and the water.
I especially like her 'wonky' style.
The perfect Positano!

You're going to have a very special art gallery to take home to Boston someday. Such a great idea!
