this is really nice...like some scene from Venice (viva la serenissima Venezia;))...really!!! because you placed some building like some palace with thin windows that reflect on wet stone or some water - refer on venetian canal...but the most, I think that this can't stands without man with umbrella...excellent scene...I can't write anymore, but you deserve 'watch'...;)

indeed this is Venice! I was there last year's November. Actually the man standing alone was me, listening to the mesmerizing sound of a lonely cello that went out a window of the music academy. It was a somewhat estranged place, nobody on sight, a thin and gentle rain coming down, and the sound coming out of nowhere surrounding everything. After a day spent in conference rooms and hearing real estate/urban planning nonsense, I felt magic still exists: this is a snapshot of this memory of mine.

Heh, it's bit too late for considering this option, Ben. Actually I gave this painting as a present to an extraordinary person who lives in Venice.

Well it's been a long time since you last posted a pic, you should post more often. And I've written quite a bit of my story, when you have some free time, you could check it out. I just love this pic of yours, the coloring is awsome.

I would have posted more stuff if I had not been through less depressing times...
I've been also working on some secret new stuff, and it is going to be huge.

Anyway, life goes on and I will try and get a hold of your new creations! Comments soon ;)

It is somehow relieving to know you appreciate it, kenny. To be honest, I live deeply in fear of colours: I can't help thinking they are like wild beasts out of control, and they turn against me whenever I try to tame them into a frame.

You are bang on correct, this pic is about a discovery I did a couple of weeks ago while wandering the alleys of Venice. I just tried to nail down this memory before it could fall apart. True wonders happen when least you expect them! .. and thanks a lot for your appreciation!

Oh, please, stop flattering me! [link]
To be honest, I feel rather relieved by your comments: I always have had a difficult relationship with colours, especially when I have to nail down my daydreaming on canvas. This picture is somehow bound to a recent discovery two weeks ago. I was walking alone in Venice under a thin rain, and found myself into a little, desert place. There was this palace in front of me (I guess a music school) and a lonely cello resounding through the windows. I don't really know how long I did spend there, but I was hypnotised by the music, or rather... the song of that solitary cello.... oh well, enough ramblings for today!

Indeed it was magic what I was about to hear and see -

There is a real place like that somewhere hidden in Venice, late in autumn, under the rain, after the sunset. And perhaps you would be able to hear that cello if you hasten to see Venice.

And thank you again for your unwavering support, Rina!

I am glad you appreciate it. Perhaps it is just because the subject is inspired by a secret place in Venice.
