Canalside Lovelies

The views along the canals in Venice are all so different. The first painting, "Rio Tera' San Toma" shows one of the rooftop gardens that I saw so often. This is 4 x 6.
If the lighting is right you can sometimes get almost a perfect reflection of the bridges like in the second painting, "Fondamente Contarini." A fondamente
is basically a walkway along the canal. Some of them have them but many of them do not.
