Our challenge painting for this month is the Capriccio Padovano by Bernardo Bellato. My mother-in-law always wanted to travel. She would have loved this romantic Italian scene. Perhaps one day I can travel abroad as she never did. This landscape with the infinite waterways, the mountains rising in the distance, the strong architectural details and the shape-shifting clouds makes me want to travel to this place to see if it is still standing. There is a quality of light in this painting that is at once soothing and energizing. There was a wide range of inspirations from this one painting, and each of them is a marvelous exercise in creative interpretation.
