This painting was inspired by a 2005 trip to Venice, my first trip to Italy. It's hard to rival Venice as a setting for the combination of architecture, water, and the effects of direct and reflected light. Travelling again to Italy in 2008, I had my first serious look at the Italian branch of late 19th century Impressionism, a group of artists the press dubbed the Macchiaioli in 1862. These artists advocated plein-air painting, and carried into their studio-work a strong sense of light and color, as evidenced in brilliant canvases I observed in collections in Rome and Naples.
