The right and left bottom corners are pretty clear now. How about that top right corner? Anyone ready to take a guess where this is?
A reminder: You can still enter the latest “Venice, My Muse” raffle, offered by Christine Volker. Go to her interview on March 12 and leave a comment, and you’ll automatically be entered into the tombola to win a copy of her book Venetian Blood. Don’t miss out!
I know this is a few days old now, but still I wanted to share with you the beauty of a snow-covered Venice.
Snow covers Venice
Friends living there have talked about its beauty as well as its treachery. Ice on stone streets is super slick! But still, it’s magical to look at.
And an announcement! For the February “Venice: My Muse” interview with Laura Morelli, she offered ebook copies of The Painter’s Apprentice to three lucky winners.
This month’s raffle winners are: Barbara Lynn-Davis, Greg Mohr, and Albert Hickson. But don’t despair! You too can still immerse yourself in Laura’s world of Venetian painters and gilders living through dark times of plague, buoyed by hopes for love, by buying your own copy of the book. Just shop wherever you shop for books, or visit Laura’s site at LauraMorelli.com.
(Thanks to the site strangesounds.org for these snowy images.)

He loved the theater and had friends who worked at the Teatro Benedetto. Watch this video to hear more details about both the fun times he had with friends as well as his later visit–as a spy.
