As an artist, I love the colorful Liguria region of Italy. It is also known as the Italian Riveria. This is a traditional oil painting of Manarola, one of the five villages of the Cinque Terre.The Cinque Terre is a series of villages clinging to a remote stretch of the Riviera coastline. Each town is a variation on the same theme: a pastel jumble of homes crouching in a gully like crusty sea creatures in a tide pool, undisturbed by traffic or modern development.
The rugged villages of the Cinque Terre, founded by Dark Age locals hiding out from marauding pirates, were long cut off from the modern world. Today the villages, linked by a milk-run train, a ferry, and a spectacular trail, draw hordes of hikers.
