"What Happen’s in Italy Stays in Italy…" SOLD

“What Happens in Italy Stays in Italy”
6 x 6in oil on museum quality panel
  And there it was.  Glimmering and  shimmering– like a soda fountain in the middle of the dessert.  Me ‘n’ you, bicycling and talking our way down old Italian streets.  We were, in effect, a gelato incident waiting to happen.  I told you not to get the third cup (one has to build up a tolerance for this– I have been cultivating mine for quite some time).  You should never listen to Eddie’s suggestions.  He always has an agenda.  Thankfully he didn’t have his camera on him, so no matter what he tells to whom, we can deny the details to our dying day.  What happens in Italy stays in Italy.

    Love how your imagination pours out in your words. If you weren’t such a great painter, you could have been a writer!

    Love the vibrancy of this piece. I, personally, would get gelato first, then nip into the bar to finish the day with a glass of wine making sure Eddie wasn’t in the vicinity.ReplyCancel
