For the premier column, I've chosen SL Italian Community. It's not a surprise that a country so rich in art provides a talented community of artists. With 444 works and 61 members at the time of this writing this group has really shown enormous talent. I grabbed a few highlights to show you what this group is up to.

Tempura- Autumn by SLnnItaly is very impressionist looking. I love the artist's perspective and also talent in enhancing this piece to make it appear more as a painting. You can almost feel the oils on a canvas.

Marty86’s U2 - Magnicent shown here is really pleasing on the eye as well and expresses strong romantic emotions. In particular, I love the perspective of this piece and the manipulation to give it a more ethereal feeling.

This last piece I wanted to feature is named Silence by Ilary. It is a bit more macabre than the others. I love Ilary’s sense of negative and positive space and the juxtaposition of the headstone with the sun sends the viewer a really unique message.
Ok...that is my group of the week. Click here and check SL Italian Community further. There is a ton of really quality work.
