2020 Molo 22 30x15cm olio su tela

Monday 4th May 2020 – Wet Dock

This Monday is special, because exactly five years ago, this weekly Monday column began, on May 4, 2015. I want to celebrate this beautiful moment with you, and you can find the first Monday at the end of today’s Monday. The artowork of today, as well as the one of 5 years ago, gives me that sense of daily joy, which I live every time I find myself painting something that I have experienced.

For example, if we remember that we are fragile …” I found that fragile in this painting in those two ropes that […]

Monday 10th February 2020 – Out from the port

For painting these 12 papers, I started from one of my paintings “Exit from the port” printed on Rembrandt paper of 300 grams in A4 format. It is a variation on the same theme with the inclusion of acrylic and oil colors with the brush.
