The every now and then paintings of a high school art teacher who wishes she were a daily painter.

I didn't have time to start another painting before going back to work, so I decided to draw. I love, love, love to draw, but don't spend enough time sketching. It was too hot to go outside to draw (98º) so I pulled out some photos from some of my travels. This is Burano, Italy, an island very near Venice. There are many lace makers on the island. This market had lace items in all of the stores - table linens, dresses, and umbrellas. It is a beautiful place with many colorful buildings. I intended to add watercolor to this, but I liked the ink just like it is. I'll paint the next one.
