A Venetian Fairytale

A visit to will take you to a very special personal story. Discover how Alan & Susan first fell in love with Venice A Venetian Fairytale.

Sunlight in Venice is a beautiful reminder of my first visit to the Beautiful City of Venice.

The story begins with To Old Friends

There are some people we meet thought our lives that leave an inexplicable mark on us. My old Venetian friend Nai is one such person especially for Susan Reed. Like a second Mother, a delightful enigmatic and wise lady.

Nai Fasano

Nai’s home in Via Garibaldi was very much a traditional Venetian home. Much of the furniture belonged to older family members who lived there previously and kept in immaculate condition.

Alan took great delight in sketching in the rooms  of this old typical Venetian family home. Prints of Italy for sale and to view at Alan Reed Gallery in Ponteland. You can commission Paintings of Venice here.

Giving Susan a first-hand experience into the wonderful family values and Italian culture is something she’s never forgotten. Whether through watching Nai’s mother in law, the head of the household sewing intricate swatches of lace by hand. Lovingly  made for the family’s bedding and linen. Then there were the delicious dishes Nai taught Susan to cook from scratch. From fresh artichoke hearts – “carciofi” floating in salted water and divine when cooked. To a simply delicious starter of zucchini and pasta, drizzled with fresh lemon juice, olive oil and parmesan. Wine was always enjoyed with every family meal, followed by a caffe corretto – espresso and Nai’s favourite tipple – a shot of grappa.

Prints of Italy were born from these precious memories of Sunlight in Venice.


In 2006, Susan and I spent a week in the Dolomites with Nai an old Venetian lady friend who has a holiday home there. I spent the week awestruck by the majesty and spectacle of God’s creation which was so evident throughout the Dolomites. I produced many sketchbook watercolours painted on location. At the end of the week, we then went to Venice for a few days where we were able to enjoy the Venetian Regatta. It was at the end of our stay in Venice that I was inspired by this view of the Grand Canal which I titled “Venetian Dawn”.
