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.

Diamond Ring - ACEO

Watercolor on Fabriano 140 lbs paper.

This year the E-bay ACEO group has again involved its members in the fantastic Double ACEO Playing Card Deck.

I won the 6 of Hearts.

Due to the number six (also called the Devil number) and due to hearts, the sign of love, I've thought to what seduces love more than love itself: a diamond ring.

It seems that I've been tagged! :-) Three times by:


This means that I thanks a lot my dear friends who choosed me in billion pool of blogs here in the net.
This also means also that I have to write something new and strange about myself

The rules of the Blogger's Tag game are:
1. put a link in your posting about the artist that tagged you.
2. write 5 -7 unusual things about yourself.
3. tag 5 - 7 other Bloggers and let them

1) Mine is not the worst allery in the world, but it's quite invalidating, I'm allergic to... Mint! I can't wash my teeth with normal pastes, I can't cure a throatache and I can't eat most of chewing-gums.

2) I played basketball in the major Italian Legue, (also if I'm quite short for a basketball player).

3) When I was joung I didn't attended an artist school because one of my school mates was better than me in drawing. I thought she was fine for an artist school and not me. Probably she did something else in her life, I still eat my nails for not attending it.

4) I married a man who is the exact opposite of me... The last thing he cares of is art!

5) I've been working for 15 years on computers, now I enjoy it!

6)There's a song I know since I was a little (less than one year) baby, it's a Brazilian song who's words I know in italian, no-one ever translated it, it's called "voce abuso".

7) I can still remeber the map of the home I lived in until I was 2, I can remeber exactly many particulars that turned to be real and that both my parens didn't remember. Actually I find very diffcult to say what I cooked yesterday for dinner.

I will tag some friends:

1) Chelsea, I met her today, she's a so kund American girl, she lives a few miles far from my home.

2) Carol in Tel Aviv, a wonderful watercolor painter from this side of Earth.

3) Theresa because of her uncommon fantasy.

4) Melanie A sweetheart inside a painter.

5) Jelanie I admire her works!

6 Viki, have alook at her paints, what is she if not a talent?

7) Jillian She's the one that introduced me to Watercolors wet and wild, I'll never stop to Thank you Jillian for this.

I'll tag one more person, she is an artist and she's one of the most kind person I know here in the web, she's Sandra!

Pretty in Red! - Carino in rosso!

Watercolor 13 x 10 inches on 180 lbs Favini Torchon Paper, painted with Winsor & Newton artist's paints.

This is an old (1970 circa) Italian telephone, most of our homes had it in turtle-dove color or in black, but I can hardly remember that there were also in pomegranate and dark-green.

Forgive the pink background, the paper is bigger than my scanner and the edge of the sheet takes the shadow of the paint below (which is obviously white)

I'm not sure if this is the last version of this paint, I need to add something, but I'll come back on it later.

Mardi Gras TW - Who are you Masquerine?

This ACEO is appositely made for the TW "Mardi Gras" of this month. This is a little masque I had when I was a little girl, my parents couldn't buy me a real costume every year and often I used a simple masque to partecipate to Carnival Parties.
