Vernazza, Italy

In the middle of a national forest on the northern coast of Italy right next to France are five villages ("Cinque Terre" in Italian) perched on the cliffs overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. We instantly fell in love. It was just our style- lots of water and cliffs to jump from, tiny winding streets, flowers spilling from window boxes, not very many tourists, just a handful of cars, and miles and miles of hiking or biking trails. Truly a picture perfect place. This picture is in the village of Vernazza, the swimming was wonderful.

Walking up through the village the storefront of this artist caught our eye. His name is Antonio Greco and he is a native of Vernazza. I took this picture because I couldn't get enough of his art- especially now that I fancy myself a driftwood/collage devotee, artist in training, so-to-speak. Take at look at his other works of collage art here, he also collaborates with his wife Michele Lilley and artist Maya Von Geldern to make purses and jewelry- you can see their goods here. I really loved all of their art, it gave me all sorts of inspiration to get crazy with the collage. And I so love the internet because although I didn't buy anything that day- Christmas is right around the corner and online shopping is so easy.
