Lost in Colour
Memories from the Canal
Size: 20 x 24 inches
My first memories of Italy are in Venice, spending the days walking through narrow, cobbled streets, running over bridges, and traversing the city along canals. I still feel a sense of wonder as I think of the intricate facades floating above the waterways that have stood watching for centuries and kept the memories of moments passed.
Floating along the canals, I remember being struck by the façade of Ca’ d’Oro, the incredible Venetian gothic architecture with Byzantine influences, from the thin columns to the intricate decorations. As I created this painting with almost surreal roses, I thought about all those memories across time that have simply floated away.
Created with a combination of brushwork, application with a palette knife, and acrylic paint pens, this original artwork has been finished with a satin varnish for protection. The painting comes ready-to-hang with painted canvas edges and picture wire installed. The piece is titled, signed and dated on the back.
