Oil on Gessobord
A Charming, narrow street off the beaten path in Venice, Italy. It's not a typical laundry shot rendered out of Venice but when I examined the photo I'd taken, I decided to crop off the lower two thirds of it and this was the composition that appealed to me. The painting gives me comforting feelings about spring, warmth, the gentle soft fluttering of clothes on a line and the smell of newly cleaned linens. I also appreciate an eco-safe alternative to clothes drying other than an appliance. Time for me to start hanging the clothes on my line as well. I hope this painting evokes pleasant memories for you.
