Details: (See process shots in the listing photos) I spent a glorious week in Florence, Italy with long-time family friends a few years ago, and all of them are avid readers. Meeting this family when I was younger had a profound affect on my love for books and reading, and this watercolor of a map-strewn room in our vacation rental in Florence is a nod to travel, friendships, reading and exploring (physically and though the pages of books). You can see in the process photos that the Duomo wasn't visible in the photo, but I added it - as well as the roses - to balance the painting.
The art is offered *framed* in a classic toffee honey stained wood frame - distressed & rubbed with a soft mint green paint to compliment the colors in the painting. The verso is sealed and hanging hardware & wire are installed, so it's ready for a wall. If you have any questions, be in touch.
