This is an oil painting of the every day lifestyle in Venice Italy. Living in NYC, one of the things on everybody’s mind is time. Everyone is trying to Get to work, run errands, go to appointments, etc., and rush hour times are always in the back of the head of a new yorker. But in italy, time is just as simple as it is pronounced. The everyday italian might be running errands or on their way to work, but there is no rush. The painting is meant to be during the time of “Rush Hour” yet he is completely calm, relaxed, and enjoying his boat ride to wherever he may be going.
