Waiting to See the Birth of Venus

Good morning!

It's 1:03am. Yes, I'm usually awake at this time. :D

I would like share this painting I made in early 2012, after a year as an exchange student in Paris. While in Europe, I sketched and photographed many visitors and local people. I was very interested in their brief reaction and interaction with historical places and monuments. When I visited Florence, I stepped in line for the Uffizi Gallery. After 4 hours of waiting, I finally arrived at the entrance and looked back at the endless line. I thought “wow, all these people are waiting to see The Birth of Venus.”
