I’m looking forward to seeing what you paint!
Wonderful photos, and a wonderful post! I, too, was fascinated by the endless variety of boats in Venice but didn’t think to catalog them as painstakingly as you have. Brilliant idea.
Thanks for this – I might have painted a garbage boat without even knowing- with a romantic couple on board. Beautiful pictures. In Honolulu, I am viewing them before they were posted thru the magic of time zones.
How did you do it, with a lot patience John.
Thank You, kept the photos coming.
Never knew that there were so many different kinds of boats in Venice, you certainly had a lot of patience photographing them all,I look forward to the photos you send.
Hi John, we just sent our son to Spain and Italy as a graduation gift. Lucky kid huh? He rode in some of these boats. Can’t wait to forward these great photos to him. What an array…. and captured by your sensitive eye. Love this series!
Wow, what a graduation present – I’m sure he will love every minute of it.
Venice is definitely a place I need to visit before I die. One of those places that will be looked back upon as once being there. Crazy.
