Thoughts and tangential meanderings on horses, painting, and anything else that captures my interest

A Venice Tale
I think, with realistic art, there is almost always a story behind the painting. So I thought it a good idea to show some of my work with the story attached.
Many years ago, my sister, Denise, and I travelled through Greece and Italy. Italy captured my soul; when we arrived in Venice, I felt like I had come home. We would spend our mornings visiting an artistic or architectural site, and the afternoon would be spent wandering around the island, stopping for the occasional espresso or gelato. The painting above was inspired by one of the photos I took [I wish I had taken many more] while we ambled around Venice.
