Venice is the city where I gave my heart away.
I always enjoy going back to share the wonder of a city cloaked in romance, mystery and beauty.
I've been thinking about Venice a lot lately. I'm trying to encourage my husband to go home to visit his parents. Although I want him to visit soon and if that happens, I won't be able to go because Tyler is still in school, maybe we can figure out a way to go AGAIN when summer vacation begins. I always love wandering around the streets and canals in Venice. Even though summer brings quite unreasonable crowds of tourists and the churches with their amazing art are no longer free to wander through, I love being there. Maybe too, I can convince him to explore a bit more of his native land (with us, of course!)
In the meantime, I'll paint some scenes of Venice from the thousands of reference photos and sketches I have made over the years.
