Talk to me and share your passion

So much happened since my last newsletter in September. My workshop experience in Bali was so surprising and intense, it took me a week to recover from those overwhelming emotions. After a passage to Tuscany and then in Sicily -- I am back to the studio to put new inspiration into a new large painting series, as well as planning workshops.

The Bali Workshop 2013
As an art lover and collector you will receive frequent updates about currently available paintings, in the next newsletters. I will soon offer a special selection of my inventory to my email subscribers only.

If you paint and wish to be updated about my travels and workshop opportunities, California, Virginia, Italy, Paris and Monet's Giverny are just some of the fabulous destinations for 2014. A return to Bali will likely be schedules soon. Please check my calendar and inquiry now about my painting holidays and workshops.

Find the Answers to be the Painter you Want ~ Workshops 2013


Dynamic Brushwork & Creative Mixing 

The holiday season is approaching. This year I double my workshop proposal. I offer my beautiful destinations in Italy and France, for those who visit Europe and wish to include the creative and social experience of plein air painting. On the other way around I made myself available to fly and join art centers and painters clubs worldwide, to teach custom designed workshops.

My program will focus on Creative Mixing & Dynamic Brushwork. You know, I have been teaching the alla prima method long enough, to be fully aware of the painters who will benefit from my instruction:

~        Those who do everything right and nevertheless their paintings still look 'cute'
~        Those who have some experience but their palette is never large enough
~        Those whose paintings are not as vivid as the expensive paint tubes in the box
~        Those who can't resist licking the canvas twice or more, at every paint load.

The painters qualified for my workshop are many more and the spots limited to eight per workshop. Be the first to get my help to discover your own personal answers (not the formulas) to be the painter you want to be!

Sicily Painting Workshop countdown

Getting ready to fly to Catania, for my first workshop in Sicily -- Monday 4th to Sunday 10th, May 2009. I am excited to meet this group of Americans willing to visit and paint outdoor in the Noto valley. I've travelled in this area a few years ago and felt in love with the wildness of the territory and nonetheless the stunning richness of its Baroque heritage. So I guess I am a bit afraid I would have to find my way to the several locations I planned to show to these new friends. As an expat Sicilian (but from the western coast) -- I am confident that my people and home land won't let me down. So I hope the Gps navigator!
