Free Local pick up and delivery, contact this artist/seller for more info. Thanks for looking! Artist Note: Ever since I was a kid, I've always had my head in the clouds, the shapes they would make. always in a constant state of moving, shape shifting, providing new images for a young boy with a limitless imagination. like my brother (RIP) I too believe there were people living in those clouds, the only difference was the Richie could see them & I couldn't because he said I didn't yet have "Spiritually Eyes". That was then this is now..Today I think I do.

My brother David recently came back from Italy with his wife and daughter, this painting was inspired by their recent visit there and the many photos taken from their Honeymoon, that included Rome, Florence, Venice and a stop over in Paris on the return trip home. I do not fly on airplanes so I enjoy these places from the pictures I see. Price: $350.00 plus $40.00 Shipping UPS Ground 1-6 Days. This painting is carefully and professionally package & insured to avoid transit damage. Approximate 2 inch painted need to frame. Ready to hang right out of the box, hanging hardware attached.

Artist Note: More recent updated photos for viewers will get a better feel for this piece. Made some changes I believe really enhanced the composition and complement scene with bolder colors and brushwork.
