The Italy Collection

Watercolors by John McLaren

PAPA Gallery Featured Artist Exhibit

July 2022


Cindy and I were lucky enough to spend several months in Italy in 2013. It goes without saying we took a lot of photos. This exhibit includes just a few of the paintings inspired by that trip. I enjoy painting people, but I’m shy about photographing them. I was able to capture a few charming subjects, sometimes without even trying. Enjoy a little trip to Italy with us.
