About This Image

There’s something magical about the Trevi Fountain. It really screams La Dolce Vita to me! That’s the spirit of not just Rome, but Italy. It’s an Italian phrase that translates literally to The Sweet Life. The saying became well-known thanks to a 1960’s film that featured a scene at the beautiful baroque fountain – the largest in Rome. That film, of course, was Federico Fellini’s La Dolce Vita, one of several movies that have featured the landmark.

I will never forget encountering the Trevi for the first time on a cold winter day. I had seen photos but nothing prepares you for that impossibly tiny piazza overflowing with people living La Dolce Vita in Rome! It’s truly a tourist mecca with people in every nook and cranny trying to see the 18th century fountain. And when you stand there check-to-cheek with so many merry-makers, somehow it has the feeling of a party or a concert rather than an oppressive throng of people. It’s still startling to me, though, how such a large fountain was wedged into such a small space in the first place. It feels like it belong in one of Rome’s much larger piazzas.

This artwork is based on photos I took on multiple visits to that crowded piazza during my time in Italy. It’s my dreamy take on that beautiful baroque fountain but removed from the crowds and even the surrounding architecture. In a way it’s like the day-dream beach some people have – the happy place where they escape in their mind. But my happy place is a beautiful little fountain in Italy, a place I go when I want to remember what La Dolce Vita was all about. I can taste gelato even now as I look at this Rome print. How about you?

Have you had the pleasure of seeing the Trevi Fountain in person? Or does this La Dolce Vita print simply speak to you of a dreamy place you’d love to go? I hope you’ll take a moment to share your favorite aspect of this print.

How Can I Help?

At the end of the day, it’s important to me that you can put a face with the art you’re considering purchasing through my site. Aside from the print vendor who ultimately prints and ships your order, this is a one man show. The person who made the art is the same one who is typing this message and the one who will answer your questions if you drop me a note.

You are not a number and I care that you are happy with whatever art you might buy here. I’m here if you’d like to ask questions before or after purchasing. And I’m also happy to work with you where possible to customize the work you’re buying. Maybe you’d like a tweak to the shape of a print to fit in with your existing wall art. Or you’d like to add a little nod to someone special in it? Just ask! I also keep a running list of subjects I don’t currently have but people are seeking. So if you enjoy the style of my work but didn’t find quite what you were looking for, please do let me know.

I’ve been an artist for 15 years now and most of that time it’s been my full-time passion. And it matters to both the endorphins in my brain and the food I put on the table for me (and my cats) that you find the experience of purchasing the products offered here to be a pleasure.
