Titled the Flourising Tower of Pisa, this artwork features a colored sketch of a rose sticking out from a photograph of the Leaning Tower of Pisa. The bright colors of the plant’s petals and leaves match the vibrant hue of the sky, making the mixed media art so fascinating to look at. Adding a touch of cuteness to the spectacle is a drawing of a bumblebee happily buzzing around the flower.
