This is the first small painting I've made available directly on my blog in a while. On our last visit to Italy we saw these Gondolas in the Bacino Orseolo near Piazza San Marco where you can arrange for a ride in one of these beautiful boats. The design of the gondola dates back over 1,000 years and a few are still made each year. Some day I want to create a computer 3-D model of a gondola, but it would take some time to do. If anyone has already done this I'd like to know about it.
