This piece consists of extreme bead embroidery.

Glass seed beads, Murano glass beads, hammered gold crosses, felt, and acrylic paints were used to create a beaded St. Mark’s Basilica & Campanile. These pieces were then stitched to a 24″ x 36″ acrylic painted canvas depicting a beaded acqua alta.

This painting will forever remind me of the fragile state of Venice, Italy – a magical city that remains in my heart always. ♥
