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.

Happy Nun - Unmentionable - La suora allegra

This watercolor was made for this moth EBSQart Show - Unemtionables Underwear
its' a squared art 5.5 x 5.5 inches painted on Arches 14olbs paper.

There's a story below it:
There’s a way to say here in Italy that says:” The dress doesn’t make the monk”…
This paint is inspired by a fact really happened to me when I was a young girl and used to spend some days during the summer with my friend Emanuela at her home near the sea in Tuscany. One day, I was hanging up my bikini after coming home from the beach and saw a nice g-string (quite innovative at that time) hanged there, as neither me, my friend or her mother used to use this kind of underwear I asked who was the owner of this garment. The replay to my question was like a frozen shower to me, because I discovered that the owner was my friend’s aunt that was in vacation there too. What shocked me was that the aunt was quite old and that she was a nun!!! That’s quite unmentionable and if I hadn't seen it with my eyes I would difficult have believed this, in this case we can say: “the dress doesn't make the nun”

Picking cherries in pecetto - Torino Italy

Watercolor on Favini 150 lbs watercolor paper
15 x 12 inches

This is a watercolor I made for a show in my local Univeristy whose Theme was Pecetto and its traditions and landscape.
Well, Pecetto is an ancient village on top of a hill. The zone around is full of cherry trees ans I prefered to focus my imagination on the pick-up moments in spite of most people that pointed on monuments and old walls.
In the background I've sketched the village surrounded above by the Alpes scenary, in the center is the Monviso where the Po river has its source.

I'm experincing new way to paint, more water and lights effects.
