Italian Flower Shop

I spotted this flower shop in a narrow alley in Lucca, Italy on Google Street View. I wasn't sure I could pull off a painting of it, since the alley was largely shadowed by the surrounding buildings. Poor light is the greatest challenge on Street View, but slowly I am learning to make light where there isn't enough. Oooo, the power, hehe. Anyway, it was a valuable lesson for the day.


  1. Love this! You did a wonderful job, love all the color & the bit of brick & stone. Wonderful!

  2. Thanks, Nan! This one was pure joy to paint.
