I volunteered to create some extra pieces for my Painting/Drawing/Photo class in Rome. I was really excited to "respond" to the photographs that I had taken. I wanted to try and create pieces that echoed the Medieval era, but also experimented with color and line in a more contemporary way. I created a diptych of two of my favorite photos that I took while I was abroad. These pieces are mixed media on canvas. I experimented with different paints, in combination with pastels ( my favvvvvorite ) and I also used items like Euro coins and feathers. I am not an art major, but I still have a blast creating pieces that are fun and not so serious.

Ok, since I have told Isaac (my husband) that I did this, I can FINALLY share the photos.
This photos were taken at St. Angelo Bridge, just outside of Castle Sant' Angelo. All over the grating to the bridge there were locks. Each lock had 2 names written on it, representing a relationship. The back of the locks had the date that these people either started dating, or got married. Along with some of my friends in Rome, we all decided to do the same for our significant others back in the states.
This was my gift to my husband. We now have a lock, representative of our love for one another, steadfast and strong, on a pretty important bridge in Rome, Italy.
