Postcards from Europe – Venice Window

                                                  Venice Window 4″x6″ watercolor postcard

Another from my Postcards from Europe series. I shot the reference photo for this from a gondola in one of the canals. It was so cool! I know, totally touristy, but hey, I was a tourist!
The buildings there are amazing. It baffles the mind to try to imagine how they built that city. Much of it is in disrepair, especially in the side canals. The stucco is falling off, showing the brick beneath, and revealing layers of paint and colors. Even in partial ruin, these buildings are beautiful.  And everyone has flower boxes:)

After a tumultuous past as a goat milker, laundress, fine art major, waitress and restaurant owner, I've now downscaled to running my own Cafe/Gallery in an effort to maintain a social life and make a few bucks. I live a ridiculously idyllic existence in a fairytale village called Bella Coola on the West Coast of British Columbia with my charming musician husband, two amazingly creative children, and a dog whose favourite past time is eating rotten dead fish and rolling in poo. In my not so spare time I love to invent healthy whole food recipes, write YA fiction, play guitar, or curl up in my favourite chair with a great book and a gigantic mug of strong black coffee, all while daydreaming of living in Ireland...

  1. I really like your watercolor postcards! Wonderful work here – I'm so glad I stopped by! And I'm totally jealous that you went to Stonehenge.
