Roman Windows - SOLD


"Roman Windows"
6x12 acrylic on canvas board
Available through DPW gallery/auction

This month's VPO visits Rome Italy. Beautiful! There is so much to see and I spent alot of time wandering the streets in Google. There is so much color in Italy - I just love it! I found this spot when I was searching the streets & you can see the original by clicking here.

I have a fascination with windows & doors - and I love to paint them on the narrow size of 6x12. It seems to fit the design. In this particular one, 2 windows of various colors (I enhanced the blue from the map, it needed to pop more I thought) are surrounded by this abundance of beautiful red flowers. And I liked the greens in the lower right - seemed to anchor the whole view. 

Given the holiday season I doubt I will get another painting of Rome done for this months VPO, but I've saved other Rome locations that I will paint at another time. 

I love Italy!!
