January 2014 – Provincetown, Cape Cod, MA

 This month we travel to the Cape Cod, Massachusetts. After searching Google Maps I chose a small vine covered porch in Provincetown to paint. It must have been taken in summer, because all the flowers were in bloom. All the houses seemed to have lots of flowerbeds and the windows had flowerboxes. Lots of color!

“RISTORANTE IVO”
Canali di Venezia, Italy
8″ x 10″ (Oil on Canvas Board)

December 2013 – Venice

 This month we travel to the city of Venice. Google Maps took to the streets and canals with “street-view” to the inner city of Venice. No cars here, just gondolas and other boats. Each corner you turn is a possible painting. I chose a small restaurant with the view of a bridge crossing over the canal. No steps at the door of the restaurant, boats pull right up to the entrance and passengers get off. Guess you have to call a gondola when you want to leave.

November 2013 – Iceland

 This month we travel to Iceland. I chose a waterfall scene. It’s size is deceptive, those little images are people walking up to see the falls. They can climb up the right-hand mountain and go all the way up to look down on the falls. It would be an interesting place to visit.
