From the ancient buildings with the colorful flower boxes and peeling paint to the beautiful, elaborate, well maintained churches to the bridges connecting the many waterways, this city has a definite romantic flair.
Streets of Venice. What’s more romantic then being in Venice with someone you love and being loved in return. Take a gondola ride right before the sunset when the light is soft and reach in gold tones on the street of Venice. I was trying to capture this feeling and paint it on a canvas….
During my two weeks trip to Venice in 2007 I gathered lots of impressions. Some of them I used in my paintings and others are still on the project table.
Venice is a unique city. There is no chance that anything like it will ever be built again. Venice is also a congested, overpriced, kitsch ridden tourist trap. It is also the most beautiful, imaginative, awe inspiring place I have traveled to.
