Inspired by my trip to Rome in the summer of 56BC (I mean 2007), these authentic broom handle headdresses are worn by none other than fake Roman soldiers that lurk outside the Colosseum!

This scene provided a perfect opportunity for me to explore an expanse of red not often seen in nature. For over 2 weeks I continued to layer the colour until I achieved the ideal hue and saturation. Included in the creation were madder, crimson and carmine red pencils, echoing the same colour dyes the Romans used.

As I do with many of my pieces, I intentionally excluded the background e.g. the Colosseum, ancient ruins and gelato stands, allowing the viewer to be in any time or place and surmise the conversation within the main subject.

I never heard what these gentlemen were saying. Maybe they were strategizing their next conquest. As the title suggests, possibly they needed spare change for a Coke. Or perhaps they are speculating why Julius Caesar keeps Instagramming his salad!

This piece reminds me of my 20s and fun. It reminds me that ananas means pineapple and that togas should be left in the 1stcentury.

The meticulous detail and vivid colour in this piece would look remarkable on any wall or amphitheatre in your home!
