Sketches from Venice

Found some old sketches from a trip to Italy in 2002

While cleaning out the home office for a re-do, I found some sketches in an old book made during a trip to Italy in 2002. I almost threw away the book, but decided to flip through it before I did. It seems to me that a sketch journal holds more memories, value, and detail about places and things than photos do.

I think it’s about time for another trip to Italy.
