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.

Watercolor on 14o lbs Arches grain satinè.
I got inspired by the sparrows that are just arriving here and by the cherry trees that are typical in my zone, blossoms are all over also if the weather is making jokes and is warm one day and frozen the day after.

This is a tribute to the Master Antonio Canova. Here I reprouced in Monochrome watercolor, the marble statue "Amore e Psiche", Psyche Revived by Cupid's Kiss), commissioned in 1787 was ended in 1793, it's showed now in Paris at Louvre Museum.In this statue we can see the two bodies lie in a pyramidal shape that are opposed by Cupid's wings and creates a perfect balancement.This statue exemplifies the Neoclassical obsession for love and emotions.It represents the god Cupid (Amore) in the act of love and tenderness, right after awakening the lifeless Psyche with a kiss, a scene excerpted from Lucius Apuleius' novel The Golden Ass. It's a masterpiece of its period, it appeals to the senses of sight and touch, yet simultaneously alludes to the Romantic interest in emotion co-existing with Neoclassicism.Every month the Watercolor Wet and Wild promote a Master rendition, this month, for Valentine's Day, we decide to add a theme: Love and kisses, always looking at the Master's artwork.
