Caleb studied Art at the Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts in Old Lyme, Connecticut, and with his father, Don Stone. Since then has been regularly teaching, traveling, and painting and has held workshops in the US, Italy, and Alaska. He works in both oil and watercolor. He has been the recipient of numerous awards including the John Stobart Fellowship Award, the New England Heritage Award, and the Wood Award for Excellence in Watercolor. He was fortunate to have grown up in the Art Colony of Rockport, Massachusetts, and exposed at a very early age to plein air painting by his father Don Stone. His attraction to the French and American Impressionists and choice of art as a career grew from and was nurtured by this environment. He currently resides on Cape Ann in Massachusetts.
Tuscany is located in central Italy and stretches from the Apennines to the Tyrrhenian Sea.
Its landscape, artistic heritage and stand-out cities – first among them Florence – make Tuscany an unquestioned protagonist of international tourism. In this region, nature has many different facets, starting from the coast that alternates long and sandy beaches, like the Versilia beach, with rocky cliffs and steep headlands. The islands of the Tuscan Archipelago, surrounded by Mediterranean vegetation, a crystal-clear sea and rich seabeds, are peerless.
You can admire sceneries of uncontaminated nature in the Apuan Alps and in several protected areas, such as the Orbetello Lagoon, home to many species of migrant birds, including pink egrets.
However, the most typical sceneries of the region are those that merge the beauty of nature with the millenary work of man. The amazing Gulf of Baratti and the sites of Vetulonia, Vulci and Pitigliano guard necropoli and vestiges of the Etruscan civilization, while Roselle and Cosa evoke memories from the Roman Age.
Medieval villages, historical towns, castles and defense systems, country churches (the so-called pievi) and beautiful abbeys, like the one of Sant’Antimo, are scattered all over the territory and their profiles stand out in the landscapes of the Crete Senesi, Orcia Valley, Garfagnana, Chianti and the Maremma.
Finally, Tuscany is full of spas: Montecatini, Saturnia, Montepulciano, Monsummano and Bagno Vignoni, which offer relaxing holidays thanks to their thermal waters and well-equipped facilities for all types of treatments.
