2018 Fortezza 52,5x115,5cm olio su tela

Monday 24th December 2018 – Fortress

For this Monday that is also the Christmas Eve I show you this view overlooking the ocean from the fortress of the island Inis Mor, one of the Aran Islands. It is a painting composed of three canvases and the whole format is 52.5×115.5 cm. In the foreground there are rocks with some touches of color because of the earth and grass, in the background a small part of turquoise sky fades into the overseas of the ocean. I like […]

Monday 3rd December 2018 – Melancholy

This Monday I present you a 2016 paper, depicting a green stretch of Irieland overlooking the ocean.

2018 Baia 10x10cm olio su tela

Monday 30th July 2018 – Irish Bay

In this very small 10x10cm painting I have depicted an Irish Bay. It’s all a play of light and shadow, made of brush strokes and very thin spatula touches. There is a very famous song by Fiorella Mannoia, Sky of Ireland, which I think helps to get into the work when it says that Ireland “drowns you in green and covers you with blue”. In this period I am really drowning in these immense and deep colors. Happy monday and good […]
