When I travel , I always try and see a new place or revisit a special place amongst the work. Venice has to be one of the most special places I have been to, and 2 years ago in very early March I encountered a perfect day in Venice. The morning was misty and cool, there were few tourists around , and as the day grew the sun shone to make the day magic. Viewing Tintoretto's in the Galleria dell'Accademia was a special delight whilst a tenor outside delighted people with his voice. One of those delightful Italian sort of days,punctuated by pasta and a glass of wine for lunch, and lots and lots of walking. I would love to make textile pieces inspired by Venice- but where do you start to even grab the atmosphere of this wonderful city?
