Venice paintings

To me Venice is the most beautiful city in the world. The light, the color, and magnificent architecture surrounded by the canals with the gondolas and boats of all types make it a magical city. In addition it is the birthplace of some of the greatest art of all time including painting, sculpture, and music and to me that makes it irresistible. The beauty of Venice has lured artists there for centuries and captured their hearts and I too have succumbed. The paintings above were done from the apartment I rented with my family on Guidecca and were all painted from either the balcony or the roof terrace.
