Bridge of Sighs - Venice, Italy. Connecting the Palazzo Ducale and the Priggione Nove (New Prisons), the Bridge of Sighs afforded condemned prisoners their last look at Venice before being incarcerated. A sad, and emotional location. The photograph used for the painting was taken at dusk on 9-11-11. The gondolas and water taxis all flew American flags, a nice gesture of solidarity for that day. The bridge was closed to tourists, and had been closed for weeks for repairs, there was no one on the bridge. When I had the photograph processed, and began painting, I noticed what appears to be two bright red eyes, and part of a face behind the grillwork in the upper right section. I have no idea what it is, and no explanation for it, but it added a menace to an already intense site. Blues, purples, blacks predominate. Original 18x24, Acrylic on canvas.
