A Cruise full of Memories ....and potential paintings

We just returned from a cruise to the Mediterranean visiting two towns in Croatia, Venice, Rome, Naples, Florence and the Amalfi coast, Aix en Provence, France and Barcelona.  What a great time we had with friends and the sights we saw were amazing.  I made a few sketches while we traveled and took over 1,000 photos.  There were plenty of great sights that will be future paintings.  The hard decision will be what to do first!

On the Grand Canal 
Here is the view from our restaurant during lunch in Venice.  We ate across from the Grand Canal so with a few minutes to spare before they brought our pizza, I sketched this scene.   The boat is called a Vaporriti or a water bus.  We used that to ride around Venice over the 36 hours we were there.  

Here is one scene I have sketched and will surely be a painting..

I am painting watercolors for a show in Media in September that will only be originals so I have to get off the computer and get busy.  I hope to have a few new watercolors from our trip and hope to see you    on September 22nd in Media.
