The Letter is an Italian fantasy, and like most of my figurative paintings, there is just a hint of a story that you are invited to complete. Painted for the show New Romantic Figure it is a composite of several scenes from a visit to Italy. A young woman sits on the stonework in the Piazza della Signoria in Florence. Although her pose and lovely dress and sandals – which were great fun to paint – were from a real person, her face was from my imagination. The roses are from a town in Chianti, while the countryside is a view from Montepulciano.
