Peter Eustice

Peter Eustice_Untitled

This present work was a step aside from my usual oils. I started doodling in this recent period of isolation, then, like Topsy, they just grew all by themselves, I just held the pen.

Brian Pieper

Brian Pieper_Venice

I’ve been feeling shut down by covid and government restrictions, so, in order to cheer myself up I looked back on one of the highlights of my life which was my return to Venice in 2017 with Raff. These images provided me once again the opportunity to feel I was once again in Venice.

Raffaella Torresan
