“Palatine Hill”

If ever there was a neighborhood that was made up in totality by the mind of an artist, it’s this one!  I started painting the scene from the middle without any idea what I was going to paint. It quickly developed into this bright and cheery and rather romantic looking neighborhood bar scene. It makes me want to go have a glass of wine at Dimitri’s and then move over to Guido’s.
