Venice, San Marco Square
Pen and Ink sketch, 9x12" from a

My wife Gailsnd I took our first trip to
Italy recently, and our favorite city was
Venice. Here we took time to have a
morning coffee at a cafe which allowed
me to make this sketch of the famous
cathedral. Even partially draped in
construction covering, it was
impressive, and I never avoid putting
such modern intrusions in my work.
Actually I suppose having construction
on these places has been a common
sight since there beginnings, so the
blocky scaffolding is not so out of place
