RIALTO BRIDGE

My Cousin Al visited this Bridge in Venice and told me how beautiful it was.  I of course, agreed, and decided to paint it on a canvas.  I didn't want to hide it with a mat and glass since it would hide the full beauty of this bridge.... I painted it in acrylics which I really enjoyed for a change.  I understand they have restaurants with delicious food as well as amazing views.  I hope you like this.

    1. thank you Carol...you're so kind. We named her Cali since she came from California and was found in the streets there. She was SO sweet for the 8 years with us.
      We're fostering Bambi now and she'll be ours by next week. SO excited. She had heartworm so we couldn't adopt her until she was clean. Glad you stopped by to comment.

  7. This is beautiful! I am so impressed and it's fun to see you branching out in acrylics and tackling that wonderful bride with so many architectural features!! That would have been more difficult for me than a portrait! Way to go!

    1. Merci beaucoup, Martine. Vous venez de faire ma journée avec votre commentaire. J'aimerais pouvoir dire la même chose ... que j'ai visité ce beau pont. Mon cousin a adoré les restaurants et les petites boutiques ... peut-être un jour ... envoyer des câlins.
