"Gelato Shop" Painting: Fresh Off the Easel

I just finished "Gelato Shop" today -- so it's the latest off the easel. The "Limoni" painting led to this one. I'm focusing on painting places and times that made me intensely happy. Visiting this gelato shop was a favorite nightly ritual during a trip to Florence, Italy for my husband, Randy, and me, with friends Marie Drissel and John and Linda Wharton. So amazing. So much fun!

Painting it was pretty nice, too.
