Shortly an odd mysterious child.~~~~~This movie created my lasting impression about Venice.I was thinking about 'Don't look now' when I painted this, I wanted to create that feeling I feel when thinking of Venice.~~~~~The canals of Venice which resemble the corridors of the mind, unforeseen turns and shadows. Cool darkness and hollow footsteps, running towards the light, long steps stretching as if in a time warp or bad dream. Somewhere around the corner of this maze plays a band and people are joyousness but still hiding their faces behind masks.
