The Magic of Venice

There’s no mistaking Venice.
No way to get it confused with the thousand of other places on the planet.

Water for streets
Gondolas for cars
Buon giorno for Good Morning
Buonasera for Good Evening
It is simply Magico!

This scene has been on my mind since my return—funny how that works.  It’s like when I know there are Hershey’s Kisses stashed in the cabinet downstairs.  It’s the nagging thought that won’t leave —it  keeps presenting itself, over and over 🙂
Glad that this one hung around in my heart and didn’t leave me alone—it is simply the JOY of painting/ Magico!

Wishing you a day filled with nagging thoughts of special things that just won’t leave you alone ’til you do something about them 😉

P.S.  All the winners for the giveaways have been posted now with the exception of the Grand Finale Giveaway (it ends tonight at midnight)—and it will be announced shortly. To see the winners just check the widget box at the bottom of each of the posts on my site that had a giveaway.

I must admit….I LOVE doing this…. so there will probably be more giveaways coming your way.  (If you want to make sure you don’t miss anything, you can subscribe to my updates here 🙂

P.S.S.  I am heading out next week to Massachusetts (it’s workshop time;) so who knows what I’ll get into or what treasures we will find.  Last time  there yielded my first experience of hunting for sea glass.  You can read about that here.

Hugs from Me!

    Beautiful painting, Dreama. It captures my (our!) beloved Venezia perfectly.:)
    Have a wonderful, brilliant and fun time at the workshop in Massachussetts in a few days’ time. It’ll be fab, just as all the other ones have been.
    Sea glass! Ohhhhh….yes! I’ve been in love with sea glass for a few years now…absolutely beautiful…as is that excellent blog (that I subscribe to, too).
