A few years ago I spent some time in Rome in the beautiful and ancient Campo di Fiori piazza. One morning we came to the square and found it had been turned into a farmer's market over night. This was a real farmer's market, with real farmers and produce so fresh the leaves had not had time to wilt. My camera and I were very happy and I have painted a few scenes from there.
I inserted Italian words into the painting to help me capture the flavor and excitement of the day.
