Are They Lost or Just Sightseeing?, 2020

You don’t have to walk for long in Venice before you come across groups of people huddled around a map trying to workout where they are. I tried to use a mapping device on my phone a couple of times but it couldn’t distinguish between walkways and small canals, often I was asked to swim up a canal, I declined and just went where my heart wanted me to go.

I painted this  picture to remind me, it shows two groups of people desperately trying to work out where they were, fortunately for them they had maps.
