The Green Boat
On my last trip to Venice with my mum, she liked to go off in the afternoons to galleries or museums, leaving me and my camera free to walk over every bridge and down every alleyway of this amazing city. I couldn't believe my eyes when, down what looked like a complete dead end, I came across this arched river entrance with this stunning view. It was such an unknown backwater that no boats had passed and the water was glassy smooth, the reflections like a mirror. Who needs to be shut inside galleries when outside is like this?
When I got back home and into my studio, I worked from the photograph I took that day and the resulting original Batik is now framed, (19"x15"inc frame) back-lit on its own custom-made light-box and FOR SALE in my Gallery for £350. If you are interested in buying it, just send me an email.
