Happy Mother's Day - Festa Della Mamma Felice

Anna's Kitchen
12x24, oil on panel
Happy Mother's Day to all, especially Anna and her bella daughter who commissioned this piece. I loved listening to Dean Martin sing Mambo Italiano in the studio while painting and dreaming about Anna preparing her famous homemade sauce: tomatoes, garlic, basil, Italian parsley, parmesano, olive oil from her rustic jug - delizioso!

Mizti, you know I love the idea of "painting recipes". So clever! This is a gorgeous piece! ~ Sarah
