Touring Venice

There are some times when my habit of waking at 5:30 a.m. (on the dot, and usually no matter what!) comes in pretty handy. With family visiting these last 10 days, early mornings have allowed me a few hours each day to complete this new Venice piece:

Venice Italy gondola painting by Jennifer E. Young

“Touring Venice”
Oil on linen, 24×20″

This painting ( the bones of which you can see here) is the same size and format as the other recent Venice painting I posted a couple of weeks ago. They are meant to serve as companions to each other, though I think either would work just as well on its own.

In all the times I have been to Venice, I have still never taken a gondola ride. I wonder if it’s possible to paint en plein air while aboard a gondola? A girl can dream…

  1. Nice….I like the people in the painting. Way to go painting in early hours being a hostess by day and then thinking of painting by boat I say the creative juices are flowing!!!! You go girl!

  2. Thanks Marty! Well, I have to also admit that I had easy house guests. Mom and sister were happy to hang out and play with my little girl on the mornings I painted, so I could relax a bit here and there on when I closed shop.
