That’s MY Merry-Go-Round!

I was watching House Hunters International on HGTV yesterday (a guilty pleasure.) The house hunters where seeking a home in Florence, Italy. As they arrived for a meeting with their realtor, they passed a carousel that caught my attention.

“I know that merry-go-round,” I thought. I knew the shape and colors of the “crown” around the top. Then I noticed the archway behind the carousel.

“I know that archway,” I thought.

In fact, the episode was shot in the Piazza della Repubblica, a daytime view of a streetscape I had painted by night several year ago. Here’s my version of the Piazza.

I know the hours I spent painting this scene (twice, actually…I really like it) are the reason I recognized it more than five years later.
