Today is the first day in Venice!

We went to see the amazing modern art exhibition, the Beinnale today. It has two locations and represents moder artists from around the world.

This site was so interesting to view, I felt related to the artists and enjoyed seeing all the different mediums and forms of art.

One of my favorites from today was also one of the most simple. It was a "diary" or sorts, of the day. The artist would sit outside all day and observe the sky. He captured the color of the sky hourly with a single brushstroke that was only two to three inches long, about the size of your thumb. I loved the idea behind the artwork as much as I loved the simplicity. The artists name was Brehmer and the piece was named "Himmelfarben" (sky colors). It was very subjective and showed his love of nature.
