These will be my last actual posts from Venice. We fly home on Wednesday. I will paint today and tomorrow and still have a lot to post when I get home. I have done about 77 paintings here, some, like the last one were painted huddled under a covered area while it was raining. lol I will paint any place and in any weather. I will have to find shelter today again, because it is raining while I am at the computer. Ciao

Of course I have to get to the beach here. Both of these were done on the barrier island of Lido which faces the Adriatic Sea. The top one is of the vendor cart on the beach selling all kinds of drinks and treats. The bottom one is just outside the beach entrance and is a stall where you can get a snack or sandwich. Ciao

Here is a current painting that is a change of pace from Venice. I spent the last few days visiting with Robyn Sinclair and her husband, Graham in the town of Castiglion Fiorentino where they live in Tuscany. Robyn and I have been internet friends for a few years, but never met in person before. She and her husband are two of the most gracious people and I thoroughly enjoyed spending time with them.
On Tuesday Robyn and I painted in her lovely town. This is a view down one of the very steep streets looking out into the valley. In addition to painting with me, Robyn took me to the print studio that she has access to and showed me how to make prints...mine is still drying there, so you will have to see it after she sends it to me.
For those of you who do not know Robyn, and would like to see some of her work her blog is http:www.havedogswilltravel.blogspot.com There is also a direct link to her in the side links on my blog under Robyn Sinclair.
