Dreams of Sicily is a 6x6 oil by Shirley Fachilla
A little less than two years ago, my husband and I went to Sicily. We circumvented the island and also traveled to the interior. It was one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever experienced. It possesses great natural beauty. Its hills, cliffs, beaches, sea are spectacular. And the buildings left behind by the eleven or more invasions and subsequent populations are enormously evocative and beautiful.
This little painting is of some rooftops in Palermo. As you can see in the painting, the weather wasn’t always glorious. But the island always was.
