"The Venetian" - New Painting June, 2016

"The Venetian" Russ Cannizzaro's newest painting was completed on June 2016. The painting is 21" x 15", oil on board, and is priced at $4800.

The Venetian is painted from a photograph the artist snapped while visiting Venice in 2014. While traveling on the Venetian Lagoon to the small island of Burano, the artist happened upon this lone fisherman in the early morning hours.

"The moment I took the photo, I knew that I wanted to create a painting of this beautiful moment of solitude." Russ said. "The Venetian" depicts how the men and women who live on the lagoon have survived for centuries, making their living from the sea, and by mastering it, they also built one of the greatest cities in the world."
