Venice Laundry

This painting, based on another generously loaned and beautifully captured photograph from my friend, Jona ( takes in all those things I love best! Thank YOU so much again, Jona!

It's been mighty cold again with rain and possible snow flurries predicted for today and tonight. C and I have a 'date' to visit a relatively new coffee shop for some local music, and I hope the weather doesn't snag our plans -- we rarely get out these days just for a 'date!' LOL

Stay warm everyone!

They'd be having trouble getting that laundry dry this week, Lin.

Oh it's beautiful; the colors are fabulous; the shadows, the dimensions -- everything just PERFECT Lin. You are just amazing -- your talents really shine on this one. Thanks for this sunny painting on a very cold snowy day here!!

Super job on this, Lin!!!! This is such a typical Italian scene with the laundry. Funny how laundry on the line here doesn't quite get the same reaction. Hope your "date" night doesn't get cancelled. Enjoy it!

Painting is lovely! Looks so homey and settled (but I still prefer my dryer!) LOL!

Just so lovely and evocative. I know what you mean about laundry lines, but having said that, my laundry line in the yard never conveys that romantic image!
