The Magic of the Cities.

Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~ John Greer

Venezia I

Santa Maria della Salute

Punta della Dogana
Mapping The Studio - Palazzo Grassi

The surface of Venice is constantly metamorphosing [and] painting Venice is almost like being a restorer, peeling off the layers to find the picture after picture underneath.”
~Arbit Blatas

Alô Carraol,
Belíssima série de Veneza!
Veneza tem uma luz maravilhosa.
Canalleto, Veronese e outros grandes mestres da pintura "inventaram" a cor na arte retratando esses canais e esses edifícios.
Você, como sempre deu um show de luz e composição.
Um abraço

The first four pictures make me think of El Angel in different settings.
