A YEAR IN PAINTING
LA VITA E BREVE
L'ARTE E LUNGO
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."
-T.S. Eliot, The Four Quartets
From The Trasimeno Series
Oil on canvas, 13" x 21"
It sits in Aquamarine and Cerulean, is covered with Viridian and Emerald and it is all under a dome of Cobalt and Ultramarine. It is called 'La Isola Incantevole', The Enchanting Island,
largely uninhabited with a Medieval fortress and a monastery in ruins.
They say that the olives grown on Polvese produce the finest oil. I don't know about that, but dreams of the Templar Knights, Dragons and unabated Romance is there.
