Welcome - Benvenuti - Welcome

Thanks for coming here, take a sit and have a visit.

This is my blog, I paint in watercolor media, that's my way, that's what I am.

No favourite subject, just my fantasy and what life suggests me.

I paint also commission, contact me directly for that.


P.S. I forgot to ask you to be patient with me, I write in english but that's not my mother tongue, and believe me, I try to do my best to express my thoughts and feelings.

Fishermen - 6 of spades in 2011 ACEO Playing Card Deck

ACEO 2,5 x 3,5 - watercolor on Fabriano 300 gms paper.
Painted for the 3rd ACEO Playing Card Deck at Ebay Aceo Group. This year I have the 6 of Spades.

Tis is from a pic I took in Zanzibar a couple years ago. The color of the sky and the mix of bluish of the sea gives a great contrast to the white if the sails of this little boats.
The boats are carved in a single piece of wood and yhis wood looks so black.
Fishermen don't love that people takes pics of them or better they'd like to gain some money from this but my camera was powerfull enough to be able to get son excellent shoots that are perfect for some more paintings!

Like Louis Comfort Tiffany

Do you like Tiffany lamps? I've a passion for it, maybe because of all this color mixed and well standing alone at the same time, or maybe because of their fashionable light, you notice it when there's one in a room.

It's a while that I have this in mind and found a little time last thuesday, while I was painting with my friend Gabriela. I thought it would have been a nice and easy exercise, something you can do in a sort of doodling... if you ever think like me, forgive it and get a try, it took me 3 days to get to an end.

Hi all,
again I missed to post here since had much, really too much things to do, not necessary art related.

Last week-end my younger son Davide had his confirmation at Church and this is the last occasion to meet all the relatives together.
To prepare this great festivity it took ages because of the weather (snow, snow and again snow) choose the right restaurant cause we live in a hill zone and the snow causes many probs. And finally to prepare the gadget-box of sweets for everyone.

In the middle count a couple flues rushes and a run to hospital with the elder son (he was lucky enough to have not broken any bone).

Anyway, my dreams of painting are just a little flame in the middle of all this "to do" things.

I painted for the gadget and produced 100 bookmarks with a lighthouse this is the result:

This is the paint that I used as base of these bookmarks:
