Ann Bell loves Venice
I arrived back in Houston from Venice late Monday, April 2. Since then, I’ve mainly been sleeping…early to bed & late to rise … plus trying to answer emails and play catchup.
Venice was WONDERFUL!!! The best way to see the most at close range is to walk. I walked every day as far as I could…and I still didn’t see everything. But I saw a LOT. Guess I’ll have to visit Venice again!
I’ll add some of my photos as soon as I have time to transfer them from my camera to my laptop.
I am so eager to start painting. I see lots of gondolas, canals, bridges, and broken stucco in warm ochres & venetian reds, with all the peachy and rosy colors that result from mixing the two.
I also envision a virtual Venice painting online Workshop….it’s still in the virtual planning stage.
I had a major breakthough and also did some journaling. Lots of walking & looking. Some boat riding. I was also able to hear a live concert of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons played in the church where the composer worked…an amazing bit of luck.
Did I mention that Venice was AMAZING?
I’ll have photos from my trip, and at least one new painting, at my Open Studio on Saturday, April 14, noon til 5 pm.
My studio is located in Art Square, 2711 Main at Dennis, in Midtown Houston.
My light-filled magical creative space is Studio #114, at the end of the downstairs hallway. Please come by and visit.
