The Flower Lady

Romania is a colorful place.  This is an oil painting of a street in the town of Sighisoara, Romania.  On my frequent travels rarely a time goes by I do not see this flower lady selling her fresh picked bouquets to the visitors to the citadel.  This particular piece has been made into prints to be used in a fundraising effort for the Christian social service agency called Veritas which works with the poorer Roma families from the town and surrounding villages.  My love of color and the newly painted facades as part of the revitalization efforts in Sighisoara just had to be painted.
