These two ladies were enjoying gelato in Rome. I have mentioned my goal of painting twenty images from my Italy trip. I should have titled it "people in Italy". I guess we can't help what we are drawn to. I love watching people and their body language. Another thing that is interesting to me are the surfaces behind the figures. Centuries old tumbled marble, stone or brick, layer upon layer of paint or stucco. I am not am abstract painter but I might come up with some interesting looking paintings by studying the different surfaces.
I have got to vent for a minute. How many words do we have to type in to make sure we are not a robot when we make a comment on someone's blog? You have really got to be motivated to leave a comment to go through the verifications. Maybe it's just me?
This is painted on an 8 x 10" linen panel.
