"This series is happy moments in my travels to Italy and the Mediterranean area. The textured papers remind me of the richness and colors used in the villas and homes along the coastlines. Marble (metamorphic rock), stucco and granite are immensely popular materials used throughout the Mediterranean, I added the drip technique to represent water's power to enrich and etch out the lives and homes of so many different cultures and peoples along the Mediterranean coastlines." - benMUSA
