Inspired from our first trip to Italy, I fell in love with everything about Venice. The city feels preserved in time with all transportation happening on water versus roads. The architecture, art, history, and people are all fascinating, the food and wine delicious, and it was such a romantic place to visit. So in this painting, I captured a lone gondola to convey that feeling of lazily drifting along with your loved one down this brick canal filled with history and future memories.
If you're in the Dallas area this coming weekend and you'd like to see Creating Memories and more of my palette knife paintings in person, please stop by my booth at the Cottonwood Art Festival.
