I think I saw a sliver of blue sky this morning, and it has put me in the mood to celebrate all things sun-drenched, warm and golden.
The late Carlo Rossi is famed for his Italian scenes, and anyone who has been to Italy knows that the light really does have this effect on the landscape. A kind of a golden twinkle that captured Carlo's heart and imagination.

He would capture this light with his oils, celebrate it really, and his paintings would come alive. A beautiful subject, made more beautiful.
People who have come to see this memorial exhibition have been in awe of this very large Venetian scene. Not only do many people have happy memories of Venice, but this painting exquisitely portrays the beauty and romance of the incomparable 'floating' city

Somebody today commented that it looked like a 'fairytale land'. I liked this because I don't think that this was Carlo's intention, it was just the way it came through his brush.
Thanks for reading!
