It's been quite an adjustment getting used to the chaos of Italian city life. This piece, perhaps, reflects a bit of that chaos. In this city there is color everywhere, stuff everywhere, people everywhere (with the exception of my paintings, hehe). It's a crazy, chaotic, interesting place. This market, though much smaller and more tidy then some, was fun to paint for that reason. I happened upon it one day on a short trip just outside the city. The blast of shapes, colors, and values, was a good exercise to work through.
