*All of my Travel Sketches may be re-painted by commission.  If you see one you like that is sold or you'd prefer in different colors, contact me!*

Santa Maria Maggiore is situated on a large traffic island surrounded by whizzing vehicles. So, the quiet of its heavily decorated interior is a nice contrast. One of five major basilicas of Rome that I drew, inside and out, Santa Maria Maggiore seemed small in footprint but mighty, with is well-proportioned facades, front and rear almost equally majestic and spilling out into a piazza and a very tall tower pointing skyward, heavenward.

I made the ink drawing as an architectural history graduate student on fellowship from University of Virginia in 2012. I used watercolor to interpret and enliven the drawing during pandemic quarantine, Spring 2020.

Watercolor Paper 140gsm

11” x 14”

Frame not included.

I'm excited to bring nearly 100 of my architectural Travel Sketches, created in mostly Italy, but also Switzerland, France, Spain, Greece, Hungary and Czech Republic from 1998 - 2012, into a Collection: lines drawn on site now illuminated by watercolor. Together, they reveal my personal evolution in architectural travel sketching and offer a piece of travel art that can remind you of your own memories in place, invite you into these spaces with your own experiential vision.

Thanks for helping to DO GOOD and GIVE BACK: 25% of the sale of each piece will be donated to Lifting Hands International* (LHI), a 501(c)(3) public charity that specializes in international and domestic relief and aid for refugees of war-torn countries of origin.

I'll also donate 5% of the sale of this piece to the University of Virginia School of Architecture for student assistance/scholarship for travel study abroad.
