Let us go to Venezia!

Dear Art Lover,

     A ghostly figure in the traditional Venetian black hat and cape, called the 'Tabarro' in Italian, approaches the Ponte Canal [canal bridge] in Venezia (Venice, Italy). The distant people walking over the bridge towards their own destinations have not yet seen the transparent figure; perhaps with the fog, they remain totally unaware.

     The history of the City of Canals is vast. Especially in the fog, one might imagine ages past and the many intrigues of the evening. How the mist hides secrets!  You can almost hear the quiet! 

     This new artwork, Fog Over the Ponte Canal, Venezia is a charcoal drawing, with pastels added in places for extra dark areas.  You can see some typical Italian architecture in a city surprisingly empty. Street lamps offer receding circles of light piercing the fog.  Some of that light is reflected in small puddles in the stone road beside the almost hidden canal.
 
     This original drawing is shipped flat, and unframed. Prints are also available in a variety of sizes. This is not your ordinary Venetian scene and will add intrigue and romance to your home.

     In this video, I start to add a ghost figure in a traditional Venetian "Tabarro," a black cloak or cape.  I wanted something to reference the history of the City of Canals, Venice, Italy (Venezia is the proper name).
