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.

"Stay Cool - Old needs new technologies" "Stai fresco - vecchi bisogni nuove tecnologie" EBSQ

This is a watercolor painted appositely for the EBSQ "cahtch the breeze" show on 5 x7 inches Fabriano 140 lbs Watercolor paper. I used Winsor & Newton watercolor and Indian black ink.

Speaking about fans my mind runs immediately to those painting seen inside the Pyramids or Egyptian tombs where you could see the Pharaoh with his slaves making him air with big fans made of leaves.
Since than, what’s changed?
In two words: nothing and all!
The need to stay cool is the same. The technology how we do that… it is all an other world!
This watercolor represents a portable fan and its battery, an interesting object to handle in those hot days when neither a leaf moves on the trees.
