Venice Patio

Another armchair return trip to Italy through Bonny's wonderful photos.

This architectural element seems to be all around Italy -- the arched doorway, the view over the street, alley or garden, the pots and pots of geraniums! I LOVE THIS!

What a gorgeous scene!! You are having so much fun with these photos Lin. Isn't it great of Bonny to share them.

Very nice; I can almost feel the sun on my
face. I especially like the way the walls
look bleached by the sun but the door is inset and darker; and the splash of color the flowers add.

Lovely, Lin!

So serene, you've really caught a sense of beauty and quiet with this. Very nicely done light shadows.

Beautiful and very romantic

I love that you've done so many of Bonny's photos -- and done them so well! They are wonderful, aren't they!

Rob's first words when I showed him this painting: "Oh! That's a nice one!" And I couldn't agree more!!! You did a beautiful job with this one, Lin. I'm so glad you're having fun doing these paintings. You do them so well, too!

No matter what the weather or what's going on where I am, it's nice stopping by Lin's world of beauty for a bit of cheer and light and color each day. I'm getting to know Venice from your paintings.
