"Balcone di Amore" SOLD

“Balcone di Amore”
6 x 6in oil on museum quality panel

Painting this coastal balcony in Italy reminds me— how precious each little piece of the world that we make ours, actually is.

Hands, not as young as they one time were, spreading out a well worn, but well loved cloth on a table for two.

Plants watered and spoken too.

Deep breaths taken of sun warmed air.

We bring the gift of ourselves to everything we touch. Perhaps that is what makes me so happy when I see these minuto balconies with their arms so full of such things that we humans find precious. What each of us has that goes into all these things—that thing that fills all the space and then some….


May you have a love of a day.

May the plants nod their heads to you when you pass.

May the birds sing their song just for you.

Just for the day, may you be infinitely aware!

    What beautiful work! I happened onto your blog and it is a wonderful discovery. There are so many “colorists” out there, but as you no doubt know, it is so hard to do it well, to use many bright colors in one piece and keep them in harmony, to find the right muted colors to balance them and make them feel right. Your pieces do all of that, and yet, your composition and drawing skills are just as remarkable. You have another new fan.ReplyCancel

    Dreama…when this painting popped up on my screen…tears came to my eyes. Why? I cannot explain, except that I felt each of your magical brushstrokes…the subtlety, the effortless-ness, the serenity, yet the strength in this piece. This is what I would love to strive for in each of my paintings. You have, for me, truly captured “something here”. Thank you friend.ReplyCancel
