2018 Piazza Duomo 24x30cm olio su tela

Monday 3rd September 2018 – Milan Cathedral

Monday 4th June 2018 – Milan Cathedral

The purple colors of the sky dominate the scene, the buildings seem to almost disappear, so intense is the brightness of the sky. I painted this artwork like a song of love, with the strings that line up for your beauty, waiting just for you to take the first step and make her dance. Happy monday and good week to everyone!

Every time I come to look for these situations, because layer by layer I find something interesting for me. Happy monday !
