About This Image

My time in Sorrento on the beautiful Italian coast was short. I had read it was a great staging ground to see Pompeii and get a taste of the coast. And it definitely lived up to those expectations. On our last full day as we headed down to the Marina Piccola for a brief jaunt to Capri, I so wished we could have extended our stay in this beautiful part of Italy. Just look at the picturesque city of Sorrento! The historic city center is up on those cliffs. The beautiful building you see perched at the top of the cliffs is the Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria, an early 19th century hotel And I would say from the exterior at least that grand is an excellent adjective! Wouldn’t you?

Those beautiful dawn skies over the buildings of Sorrento haunt me still. It was such an incredible sight to look back upon from the port. We had climbed down the twisting stairways that link the city center of Sorrento with the port and as you can tell from the view, it was an amazing if tiring experience. This picturesque Sorrento print is based on photos from that morning as we awaited the ferry. And this print very much reflects not just Sorrento but what I experienced as a whole along the Italian coast. Whenever I see pictures of buildings climbing a rugged scenic coast like this, I know it must be Italy. There’s a rich flavor of the Mediterranean world in this print.

We only got a taste of Sorrento and the Italian coast, but it was like a small cup of gelato. It was wonderful while it lasted and left me wanting more! I look back at this print and other scenes from the Italian coast and it feels like a long-ago dream rather than an actual experience. Doesn’t this view of the Excelsior Vittoria perched on the Sorrento cliffs have an air of a fantasy to it? If it didn’t really exist, an artist somewhere would have had to have made it up. It has the air of an old travel poster asking you to explore the Italian coast doesn’t it?

Have you explored Sorrento or is the Italian coast on your bucket list? I’ve been and yet it’s still on my bucket list! Whether you’ve been or not, I would love it if you took a second to share your personal favorite aspects of this Sorrento print!

How Can I Help?

At the end of the day, it’s important to me that you can put a face with the art you’re considering purchasing through my site. Aside from the print vendor who ultimately prints and ships your order, this is a one man show. The person who made the art is the same one who is typing this message and the one who will answer your questions if you drop me a note.

You are not a number and I care that you are happy with whatever art you might buy here. I’m here if you’d like to ask questions before or after purchasing. And I’m also happy to work with you where possible to customize the work you’re buying. Maybe you’d like a tweak to the shape of a print to fit in with your existing wall art. Or you’d like to add a little nod to someone special in it? Just ask! I also keep a running list of subjects I don’t currently have but people are seeking. So if you enjoy the style of my work but didn’t find quite what you were looking for, please do let me know.

I’ve been an artist for 15 years now and most of that time it’s been my full-time passion. And it matters to both the endorphins in my brain and the food I put on the table for me (and my cats) that you find the experience of purchasing the products offered here to be a pleasure.
