The Violinist
Original Oil by Linda Besse - 24" X 20"

On visiting Genoa, Italy, I was not prepared for the architectural splendor of the town. Even the street lights are a work of art. While wandering the small streets and alleyways, I came across a man who had just sat down and taken out his violin. I wanted to tell this story on the centuries-old streets of Genoa - and wait for the first notes to play.
