A YEAR IN PAINTING
LA VITEA E BREVE
L'ARTE E LUNGA
As our planet makes its journey around a star we
call the Sun, I make my own journey in paintings.
Each week I present some aspect of our shared life
experiences through the medium of paint on canvas.
"Old men ought to be explorers."

You see them everywhere, they await the English, German or North Americans to
'fix' them up. They will be beautiful, but the one thing they will never be is

Umbria is called 'The Green Heart of Italy' and it seems even Nature cannot stand so much
verdant color. To balance it She sows beautiful crimson red poppies
that when they are in bloom.....are amazing!
