Monday 24th July 2017 – Camogli

In these days on social media I see a lot of photos of beaches, seas, mountains … so while I’m waiting to leave for my holidays, I go back with my mind and heart in Liguria, Camogli.

The cliff, central, gives balance to the work. I love painting these totally natural landscapes, giving me a sense of infinite and deep peace.
