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.

Sleigh Bell - ACEO

The weather is getting worst and worst and the days go shortening. This will bring me slowly to my favourite time of the year... Christmas.
It's a long preparation, my mood changes while the wonderful time arrives and I really want it to come.
This is my first paint for the Holy Season and I love it, it's a Wallace's Sleigh Bell, an object I've always loved, a sweet sound, so big to handle, a joyful object!

Sleigh dogs

Feeling a little better I painted this inspired by the coming season.

Watercolor on FAVINI Torchon 350gms/180lbs w/c paper. Painted with Winsor & Newton Artist's paints.

While I was in San Sicario I could see the training set of this wonderful dogs, there's a special feeling between those dogs and their owner that amazes anyone that has the occasion to see both working together.

The world's crisis

I'm not painting in this days, well a couple of little things were made and I'll post it soon, but my mood is following this world crisis and painting is difficult to me when all around I hear bad feelings.

On Tuesday it will start the University course, again, it will be my 3rd year and wasn't sure if I was attending or not, but actually I need a little support and this can come also through the entire group of watercolor artists.

I know that my blog has just a few reader, but if you are here and want to ad a comment it will be very appreciated.

Gone fishing - Andato a pescare.

Watercolor 12 x 7.5 inches

This is a watercolor on Favini 180lbs artist paper. It's painted with Winsor & Newton artist paints. I painted this piece form a reference photo I took this summer while I brought my sons fishing in a mountain lake. We don't have SPAM here in Italy so I had to substitute the plastic tin we had just follow the "strange " title of this month's show. I'm not here to tell how much We all enjoed fishing and eating the trouts this summer, what I really didn't like was to have to put the worms on the hook.!

First time to the Theatre - La prima volta al teatro.

Watercolor on Favini Artist 180lbs paper. 10 x 13 inches.

Viewing an opera performance is one of the things that each of us should do once in their lives. The atmosphere that there you can breathe, is so different from any other place in the world, that almost one can think of being catapulted into an other time in the past. Each time I enter a theater can still remember the first time I went there and I and feel the pleasure of being in a place that will never change.
