The first one was painted in Rome. It represents trees on a walking path behind a botanical garden where there's a bird's eye view of the city center in yellow & orange hues.

The second is Rome on the Via Veneto. I wanted to paint here after seeing the movie "La Dolce Vita". There's a movie theatre in the painting which I didn't notice until working on the painting which connects with the movie theme.

The third is southern Italy.

The fourth is central-northern Italy in Tuscany.

The fifth is southern Italy.

Thanks for the comments!

La Dolce Vita is one of my favorite movies of all time. How much do you charge?

I like them all, but I agree with Flo, 2 and 4 are my favorites. Great job, though, they are all terrific.

Big E: I charge about $700 depending on the size of the piece.
