"It was our first night in Venice. The evening was lovely, the air seductive - it was an easy choice to have our supper on a balcony overlooking the Grand Canal. Venice, its sparkling link to a glorious past preserved so lovingly and completely. One was quickly lost in its milieu if not captured by the continuing drama! Hearing a gondolier singing, I looked down from the balustrade where we were dining and in the twilight saw a marvelous, graceful gondola gliding through the water. Gentle waves were slapping at its sides, so softly, so effortlessly it seemed to be unhurried, its passnegers - a couple captivated by the experience. Lanterns attached to the gondola were swinging and their arcs created circular patterns of light. Fascinated, I incorporated their sweeping movement in the watercolor."
