Two Car Garage

This painting is of Murano, Italy.  We were vacationing in Venice and took the boat to Murano.  They were waiting for us!  As soon as we got off the boat, a gentleman approached us and asked if we wanted to see a glass blowing demonstration.  Of course we agreed.  After the demonstration, we were invited to visit the showroom.  We made two purchases.   When they brought out a bottle of champagne to toast our purchase, we knew we had overpaid.  Such tourists!  We wandered to another shop, just across the street from this scene.  I really admired the building and it is a memory of our second glass purchasing experience.  We went into this shop and were being extremely careful not to knock any of the wine glasses on display.  We didn’t want to break anything.  The owner came over and to demonstrate the strength of his crystal, picked up two wine glasses and smacked them together.  We were shocked - they didn’t break.  I am sure he enjoyed the expression on our faces.  We still laugh about that experience.
