Enjoying Lido

In addition to painting, I did find a beach on the island of Lido (where the Venice Film Festival is held). Lido is a barrier island for the Venetian Lagoon. The first two painting are of the vendors who on the beach. One was selling kites and the other was selling drinks and snacks. The last painting is of a stand near the public beach. I had to paint those firey colors. The beach on Lido wasn't very scenic. I am used to dunes as you well know, but the Adriatic Sea is so warm! I spent a lot of time in the water.

Wow, Joan, this blog will never be the same!! I just spent some quality time scrolling down through your artwork. I envy you the amazing opportunity to go do all this beautiful work and see all the wonderful sights.

I've been so busy that I haven't been by to peek in a while. I really enjoyed it! Glad you're home safe.
