Peace & Conflict - "Empire"

This is the second painting that I entered in the Peace & Conflict show at the Coast Collective. It is my interpretation of one of the statues (Castor or Pollux I'm not sure which) in the Piazza del Campidoglio on Capitoline Hill in Rome.

There is a lot that can be said about peace and conflict in the Roman Empire, but for me on that day it was about the way the sun was hitting those magnificent marble statues, what they represented and feeling very privileged to be there.

Approx 91/2" x 14" watercolour with gouache- $150. includes frame
