These scenes were painted from photos I took when I visited Italy. Rome was the main city that we (3 friends) visited a little over a year ago. Rome was nice but a little too commercial for us. We took a bus to the Tuscan Region and visited small villages. It was beautiful. We also went south to the Isle of Capri. My next trip will be to Sicily. My grandfather grew up in Portofino, Sicily. One of my best friends grandfather grew up in a village near there. We plan to go together one day; we may be related!
