Early Morning, St. Petersburg, Russia, 10x8"

We are back from our unforgettable trip to Russia.  A week in St Petersburg was barely enough to scratch the surface of all the city had to offer.  Naturally, the highlight of the trip for me was a day spent in the Hermitage--I made a bee line for the Impressionist wing, then I wandered about aimlessly for the rest of the day, getting lost and surprised at every turn.  I'm told that if a person took one minute to look at each object in the Hermitage, it would take seven years to see it all.

This painting represents my impression of early morning on the Neva River which runs throughout the city.  Wandering around the city is an adventure in itself, considering that all signs are unintelligible to American eyes, and the language-- forget about it!  I felt like I was truly in another world.
