My favorite part of my recent trip to Italy was the time I spent in the magical town of Cortona. I took hundreds of photos of architecture, especially the WALLS while in Italy.
I have three series of painting planned from the trip and this is the first piece in the mixed media series "The Walls of Italy".
This piece was inspired by a photo I took on a walking tour of Cortona in the oldest part of the town. The outsides of these structures (all occupied) looked as if they were crumbling and many had rusted metal from who knows what exposed, but we were assured that the interiors were beautifully restored and modern!!
Oh the stories and secrets those walls would tell if they could talk!! And yes...the metal grill was actually slightly crooked on the wall and a rusted key was also really on the wall!!
