Whenever I have a little extra cash to spare, instead of splurging on something wasteful, I try to spend it on something for my house. Since my travels with Scott came in under budget, I decided to purchase some artwork for my guest room.
I did some research and looked around for something modern by an Italian artist. I finally decided on a piece called "Essenza" (Essence) by Maurizio Piovan, who happens to be from Padova, a town just west of Venice. I picked it up from the framing shop yesterday, and I'm really happy with how it looks on the wall. And no, I'm not posting pictures. You'll just have to come see for yourself.
