I stopped at the bridge, Ponte Vecchio, Firenze, Italy and looked over the Arno river flowing accross the beautiful historical city of Florence. Suddenly, I noticed a beautiful boat carrying the two women with a sunshade umbrella. That scene was totally enraptured me and made me not hesitate a moment to paint it. Based on the plein air painting I did on the spot, I repainted it into this larger canvas again in the studio after that time. The mood and the temperature whipped on me that moment was so clear in my head and I could recall it so lively on the canvas. It was very hot there in summer but I really liked every spot in Firenze, one of the most beautiful cities in the world and will never forget the memories carved in my heart that time in July - Aug 2015.

I used to be a chemical engineer, a businessman in the petroleum/gas industries and retired as a CEO of a construction company. But now I'm just a humble artist, a painter. I am very proud that I'm an artist as I'm enjoying my role in the world creating artworks, a new world of my own on the canvases.
