Dear Elizabeth,What a beautiful scene! It's like something out of a movie - I'm thinking "Summertime" with Katherine Hepburn and Rossano Brazzi.... :)
The artist who had this view right at their worktable had better powers of concentration than I do. Venice is very distracting but still I got about 12 hours per day of total blissful working time. At home there are always other things needing doing, so for any artist, a residency away from all that is a wonderful thing. I think I used the time well, and totally dropped out of tango opportunities. I regret that only because it meant I missed seeing Tina. Thanks Irene and Man Yung. Your video is lovely!
Thank you very much for your inspiring posts from Venice. It's been a pleasure to read; the excitement of that long list of new materials, and the wonderful 'siren songs' it all ended with. Can't wait till you go back next year! & I enjoyed the story in The kind of thing that happens.I've been busy with this exhibition, http://www.loopartists.org.uk which comes down tomorrow. Talking of 'aquatinto' you might like to look at Marianne Ferm's work. John (TC)
TC, Thanks for the very interesting printmaking links. Still thinking about dates for next year...not too thrilled about the prospect of experiencing the "acqua alta" conditions of Winter though.
