Suzan’s painting

Suzan has painted this view in Venice from when she went on holiday there. It’s in oils on canvas and the colour and detail in the painting are superb. Well done, Suzan!

The island of San Giorgio Maggiore lies in the middle background, with the campanile, rebuilt in 1791, towering over the Benedictine church built by Palladio between 1566-1610. On the right is the Dogana da Mar, the former Customs House, built in 1678 and now an art gallery. A little historic information because Venice is like an open-air museum, full of wonders like these and brought to life by Suzan’s beautiful painting.
