Venezia VIII, Venice Italy Painting

Venezia VIII
Venezia VIII

The moment I saw this lone gondolier disappear into the light, I realized I had been watching a silent play.  I was the only person in the theater and the gondolier was a solo actor on this stage set in a narrow canal, away from where the crowd was.

Buildings on both sides were quite old and wall colors were faded and partially obscured by what naturally grew in the water.  But at this moment, the high walls became colorful velvety veils.  Thanks to a wonderful job of a lighting technician, light/dark effects created on the veils added a mysterious mood to the scene.  How I wished there was a curtain call...
