Illustration Friday: Stay

Leone Study, micron pen & acrylic ink on watercolor paper, 7 x 10", 2011.
This week's theme for Illustration Friday is "Stay". If I were told I had to stay in one place forever (and I couldn't pick Philadelphia) I would pick Venice.  I've been lucky enough to visit Venice twice, and I'm in love with the whole city.

My illustration is a study of my favorite lion statue in Venice.  You can find winged lions throughout the city; this one is on the base of a monument for Manin.  The orange shapes in the background are elements found on the Doge's Palace.

Where would you stay?


  1. I'd stay in bed if I could. But second choice would be San Francisco.
    LOVE the linework on the wings!

  2. haha... staying in bed sounds good to me too, tina!

    zack: sì, grazie!

    I'm glad that another Venezia lover found by blog, Sallt :)


Comments make me smile!
