Unknown Venice (again)





















36x24 Oil on Canvas
Throughout the history, the artists painted same scene many times over. So, when a client wanted the painting of Venice based on a painting of mine, I accepted it as a challenge: to paint a better painting than the previous one. This could be one of the reasons the artists are doing it over and over. In this tough competition against my self, I won. The best version is always the latest one.

Beautiful, Miro. However, can the artist ever be satisfied with his/her own work? I have a mountain or more to climb yet; you are at the summit viewing the horizon for more mountains to conquer!

Love your work.
