Cheryl Chidester – A Path Beyond the Ruins


A Path Beyond the Ruins
Watercolor, pastels, charcoal
This painting was inspired by my visit to Ostia Antica, The archaeological site near Rome, Italy. The textures, the patterns and designs, the history and the concept of inside/outside all intrigued me. The beautiful Sunday I experienced taking in the sites and history of the ancient port city not only inspired the artwork, but also its metaphorical title. The work is framed in conservation materials.
