Passageway behind Rialto Market - Venice

It is a beautiful landscape of mountains dropping into the sea.

Small show!

Today Alice and I spent some time hanging most of my paintings on the walls at the Language School. I had more than I realized.
 It's great to be able to see them all together.
 Normally they are simply stacked against the wall or in boxes hidden from view.
