breakfast – slowly

A painting that stays for the beauty of the morning hours… in a Vienna’s Café place just a calm moment with time for reading and tasting the first coffee of the day.

The light is still a soft one, the place is quiet an hot day maybe will come. Opposite to the stressful life rhythm, this subject is for me a symbol for a different way to live the day.

I had the time too on that morning, for a slow start and a painting subject was just appearing in front of my eyes without really doing any effort – it required just a fresh look to the world.

Cleaning up

It is since a while I was planning to continue painting some interiors, this subject has many aspects that I found interesting and funny to paint : the light – the morning sunshine entering the room creating a lot of reflections and a path for the eyes… the mirror that reveal part of reality usually not visible to the observer…and the cleaning lady. She prepares the table for the day, cleaning dust and dirty – a kind of white fee that with a simple work bring the world to shine.

I am fascinated by those usual scene so normal and so beautiful. I tried to paint loose and light not” to disturb her” in her work.

Love

Some weeks ago this little painting was shown in a group exhibition in Milan – theme was love and the work was done for this purpose.

Frankly speaking i could not imagine a romantic love picture therefore I went back to my memories and found and old photo which depicts strong friendships feelings with an impossible tight hug and smiling eyes

That is love for sure, without compromise and expectation – just lived in that moment of life where all is possible.

A little portrait

I am not going to tell much about this portrait apart that i had the luck to have this pretty lady as a model for a spontaneous photo shooting some time ago.

A lovely subject and a beautiful light so I decided to try it out ☺️

Moreover It was so nice to have a gesture in a portrait and a little story to tell, I really enjoyed it.

White

I love to paint white subjects and simple buildings. This painting is a small plein air study (24×30 cm) oil on panel that I made last Sunday. The day was bright and the building which has a bit of uncommon in the architecture was nearly shining im the sun. Rendering the light in an appropriate way and the subtile color variations on the white wall is a delicate pleasure as well as discovering the beauty in an everyday situation and place.
