You are in love "when the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie" or "when the stars make you drool just like a pasta fagiole." How about "when the world seems to shine like you've had too much wine" or "when you dance down the street with a cloud at your feet*"? Sì, that's amore!
Valentine's Day is just around the corner to celebrate all kinds of love we have for one another. This painting is not my recent creation but I thought it'd be perfect for a day for love (Click here to read a previous post about this painting). This scene happened a long, long time ago during my travel in Italy. But I still remember, as if it was a scene in a movie I watched many times, the atmosphere, the noise, the air... Every time the memory comes back to me, I can't help saying that's amore!

Superb, Keiko! The reflected bird on the car roof is a great touch.
Don, thank you. I am delighted to hear your comment. That car roof is my favorite part of this painting, too.
