DESCRIPTION:
The exhibition which was titled "City of Love - Where Dreams Come True"  was held in the Venetian themed Mercato Mall in Dubai. 
 The main pieces are Venetian themed from a trip I made with my cousin Mel Honnor two years ago for Carnival, inspired from this gondola ride in full Venetian costume into the sunset under the Rialto Bridge (from a picture I had of Venice on my goal vision board years prior).  At this moment I decided I wanted to paint a series of Venetian works....  I have always been drawn to Italy, so it's fantastic to have the opportunity to paint somewhere I love in a completely themed environment! Contributing to a great cause with the aid of so many wonderful people.

The Rialto Bridge is the oldest of the four bridges spanning the Grand Canal in Venice, Italy. Connecting the sestieri of San Marco and San Polo, it has been rebuilt several times since its first construction as a pontoon bridge in 1173, and is now a significant tourist attraction in the city.
