Freedom Remembered



"Bridge of Sighs"   Venice   Original Watercolor  5 x 8  $45

Enjoying this holiday, and a day away from work!  Just finished
this little watercolor of one of the famous landmarks in Venice. 
This old bridge connects the hall of justice with the prison,
and convicted prisoners had to walk across it, "sighing" as they
went.  A bridge of sadness....despair....chains.  

As we celebrate the birth of our nation today, we cannot
take our freedom for granted.  Just as these prisoners
rejoiced when they were finally set free, we should rejoice
and be grateful for the freedom we experience every day.
Happy 4th of July!!
