As a frequent traveler, I continue to be inspired by the urban landscape and, in particular, the small everyday items that we pass by everyday without noticing. I am fascinated by things like fire hydrants and pay phones, we pass them every day on the street but we never really take the time to 'look' at them, I like to take those 'forgotten' items and put them center stage. I encountered these beauties on my trip to Italy in 2011. I photographed many a Vespa while I was in Rome but this lovely couple steals the show, they just look so cute hanging out by the water fountain together!

This mixed media painting on wood is created using a combination of textured papers, image transfer and acrylic paints and mediums. The artwork comes with a wire on the back for hanging, it is signed on the front and has title, date, artist name and a signed certificate of authenticity from the artist on the back.
