"Venice Carpenter"

"Venice Carpenter", oil on linen/panel, 10 x 7 3/4 inches

Incredible? Unquestionably! Venice is one of the world's most fabulous cities to experience first hand. We set out early each morning, eager to explore its many treasures. One particular morning, as we left our apartment, we happened upon this enterprising craftsman who had set up his wares outside his own apartment door, just a few doors away. He was busily refurbishing what looked to be an antique, so clearly immersed in the pleasure of his task that he paid us no attention. Just a moment in time... perhaps an ordinary one at that... but one which, for me, so clearly defined the whole experience.

This painting is available for purchase through Rustica Fine Art Gallery
