This painting was inspired by the streets of Valloria, Italy. This town is famous for its painted doors. Artists from all over the world have painted many of its doors transforming this town into an outdoor museum. I was invited to paint one of their doors in 2012. It was a wonderful experience and I took a lot of photos. I used several of those photos to put together the street of this painting. The chair is a miniature wooden chair that I bought in Mexico. If you are familiar with perspective drawing you will see that there are multiple vanishing points, each wall is in one point perspective but separately, while the chair is in two point perspective. In other words, the buildings are not lined up as in a perfectly planned street, instead they appear to be built in a more rustic way, each having its own orientation (perspective).
Throughout history human beings have always had a hard time understanding people that are different from them and many of the world problems were caused from this. You would think that in today's world we should be able to understand each other but this lack of understanding seems to continue. I invite you to have a seat and see everybody's perspectives. Being able to see multiple perspectives will bring light into your life.

This whimsical painting measures 40x30 inches with a depth of 1.5". The sides were painted so it does not need a frame. It's ready to hang!
