Even though the Art & Soul International residency was cancelled for 2020 and again 2022, I decided to go to Italy, two weeks in Florence and the month of April in Venice. On my own, I was delighted just walk and wander to see the sights and be able to attend the Venice Art Biennale, explore galleries and wander aimlessly through the narrow calli of Venice, historic streets lined with centuries old architecture and over numerous picturesque bridges. Venice has captured my heart. It is so magical. My travels to Italy have provided me with a new collection of photographs to be incorporated in photo encaustics, art cards and inspire new pieces of encaustic art.
My backyard studio, top 3 pics and newly organized Rock Bay Square(RBS) studio.
Ciao, Venice, Italy, my favourite destination. An enchanting and unique city. Wandering aimlessly has to be the best way to see the narrow calli, canals and bridges and hidden treasures around every corner. Every season offers colourful events and festivals. This amazing city should be on everyone's bucket list.
