Home From Venice

We just returned from a fabulous week in Venice and I'm trying to stay awake for 3 more hours in New York to avoid "returning jet lag."  It is currently 2:45 AM Venice time and I started my day there at 6AM.

We rented a lovely apartment, with friends, and it was perfect.  The building is on a very quiet courtyard, only 5 minutes from Piazza San Marco - and on the intersection of 2 small canals.  This is the view from the living room window.

This is the view from a bedroom window.  I never got tired of watching the gondola traffic on the canals.

I sketched a map of the location of our apartment, Ca' Vecchio Pozzo (San Marco 998), to begin my sketchbook.

This is the first of several posts from my photos and travel sketchbook - including some reflections on my practice sketches from my old photos of Venice.

SO looking forward to seeing these, Shirley!

You're back. Yay!! Can't wait to hear all about it. Love this photo.

Hi Shirley, would you mind if I use your photo to do a sketch? I am on Kate's alumni email distribution list. Thank you!

Wow! :) I wish I am there!

Oh Shirley, it looks like you had an amazing place to stay! I can't wait for your sketches. And it looks like the weather was kind to you. That's wonderful.

The views are amazing! I can't wait to see your sketches.
