About This Image

A simple fact of life for anyone traveling to Europe in the winter is there will be stormy weather as evidenced by the stormy Italian skies in this Rome print. There will be sunny days, but there will be days when the rain pours down. And then there will be little moments of promise like this one, when the sun comes out in a small way to remind us all that its still behind the dark clouds.

Luckily some of us love the drama in  stormy weather. While I do like a happy middle, of the two extremes, dynamic storm clouds speak to me on some level that a clear blue sky never will. The moodiness in those stormy Italian skies is clearer in my memories than the sunniest day I spent in Rome. I’m sure on some level that says something about my core-self, but I know I’m not alone as stormy artwork has been around practically as long as there’s been paint. Or at least art museums seem to be over-flowing with them in my experience! For every bucolic meadow there are storm clouds in the next painting. Have you noticed this?

And this moment when the stormy Italian skies broke over the ancient Tiber River is etched in my memory. I was standing on one of the upper levels of Castel Sant’Angelo when I looked out at the cityscape below. The rains had stopped nd the sun broke through for just a moment. When I saw it reflecting in the Tiber, it was as if the heavens opened for just a second. And, well, you can see what it was like when the sun broke through for just a moment on that gray afternoon in Rome. It only lasted a moment, but it was a reminder we’d see the sun again.

Have you seen storm clouds break over the Tiber in Rome? Or maybe the dynamic tension of this stormy print speaks to you on the same level it does for me? I would love if you take a second to share what aspect of this Rome print you like best?

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.
