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.

Is this really for Santa?" - ACEO

I painted this on the wave of the Holy season.
Some years ago I bought my sons a terrific book by Nick Butterworth called "Jingle bells", also now that both are quite big they coninue to ask me to read the story for them and I love to this because it has so many beautifyl images.
This is why I associate the Holy Season with mices.
I hope you'll like this my new little ACEO called "Is this really for Santa?".

In the house everybody's sleeping... waiting for the old nice man. The dark is enlighten only by a candle that shines in the night. A shadow comes through the living room and reaches the ligh attracted by the sweet fragrance of the gingerbread biscuits and coffee. Maybe a taste... but: "Is this really for Santa???"

New York Santa - ACEO

ACEO - Watercolor on Fabriano 140lbs Artist's paper painted with Winsor & Newton Artist paints.

Three years ago, me and my family went to New York for a Christmas short vacation. It was our first time in USA and everything sounded so special and so different from home. Manhattan was a "tourbillon" of colors the trafic was terrific, and people was so frenetic in their christmas shopping.

We walked for miles and our feet were burning by this, but we stood outside from 7 o'clock in the morning, 'till midnight trying to see everything an all.

This Santa Clause remained in my mind, and I painted him in the way I can remember, because he was the only person remained in the street in a lonely night, shaking his bell in a corner of a street. I talk with him for a while with both my two children watching as if was dialing with a ghost!

You tube... to enter in the Holy Season
