Bucket List Painting 1

 

I've decided I am going to do paintings from my bucket list. I have been to Venice but didn't make it during the carnival or take a ride with a gondolier.

 

Longfellow's Gondolier

 20x16

 

 

Here rest the weary oar! -- soft airs

Breathe out in the o'erarching sky;

And Night!-- sweet Night -- serenely wears

 

A smile of peace; her noon is nigh.

 

Where the tall fir in quiet stands,

 

And waves, embracing the chaste shores,

Move o'er sea-shells and bright sands,-

Is heard the sound of dipping oars.

 

Swift o'er the wave the light bark springs,

Love's midnight hour draws lingering near:

And list!-- his tuneful viol strings

 

The young Venetian Gondolier.
