Romeo and Juliet

The hard part was making a perfect oval and constructing the lattice work around the mural. The easy and fun part was coming in late at night after the customers had gone. A glass of fine wine and great food was always offered as the crew sat down to eat. Stephano would always sing out, “Come on, Bella, eat!!” When you visit Ciao Amore, be sure to mention that you saw the mural online and tell Stephano that Teresa said Ciao.

Juliet receives lots of attention.  Seems I drew her a little more well endowed than I had intended. Stephano Crucas is the owner of Ciao Amore and the inspiration for the mural.  Romeo & Juliet were his favorite. Note, the resemblance of Stephano to Romeo.  Not intended, but good for his image.
