ITALIAN FEVER


"ITALIAN FEVER"

Collage by Julie Fredericksen

A tribute to Autumn in Firenze (Florence)
(Click on the picture to enlarge for detail)
(The background is crinkled copper foil paper - which is why the word "Italian" looks funny on the scanner.) This is also an experiment in the color palette of brown, peachy orange and yellow, with blue for highlights.

This takes me back to Tuscany - it was so beautiful there in the month of October. I long to return to that amazing land where I felt like I really belonged. Perhaps next year, if not then definitely in my next life!
