Meter Box Paintings

I have been in Florence this week and one day we visited the small town of Fiesole.

In this town meter box painting seems particularly popular, with the fashion being local scenes.

You can compare the painting with a photograph taken from a similar point.

If you look at the bottom right of the photo you can just see the actual meter box that the painting is on.

I have included a few more paintings below.

Looks like I am going to have to get busy when I get home.

I particularly like the morning view over Florence with the Duomo and other towers showing above the clouds.
