In Burano, Italy, an island in the Venice archipelago, they have very colorful houses with flowers in the windows. Their fisherman husbands can see their houses from the water. This was one of the two photos supplied by Dreama during my workshop in early October at Westford, MA. Co-incidentally, I was in Burano about 5 days before Dreama was there this last September. I'm going to look through my photos for another nice reference that I can paint.
