Essere Italiano

12 x 12, oil on canvas
This is another study from the workshop featuring the gorgeous turquoise shade of blue that Dreama often speaks about. And no, she isn't really my cousin. And if you must know, George Clooney isn't either. But I am Italian! Actually I'm sort of Italian. Kinda. Somewhat, that is. Well uh...more or less...

"be a singer
be a lover
pick the flower now before the chance is past
Be Italian, Be Italian!
live today as if it may become your last"
Fergie ("Nine")

You can be anything you want to be- Dreama's cousin or George Clooney's too! Love this painting. Wonderful colors and those flowers are gorgeously painted.

They should be so lucky to be related to you! I thought we were sisters! I always wanted to be Italian! Yay. Beautiful painting. I love the vibrant colors and loose brushwork, so confident. I am going to have to own a Faye Christian Phillips original painting very soon!!
