Many artists dream about painting in Italy. Now, as retiring baby-boomers are increasingly taking up “brush and pallet knife,” more than ever, painting in Italy is the “thing.” Every day, a new “Artist’s” tour of Italy crops up in travel sections of the newspaper and on the Internet. But there still remains a majority of artists who prefer to “go it alone.” They are independent in their artistic styles, and prefer to be independent regarding their travels in Italy . This blog intends to target these free spirited artists who still need guidance to the best places to paint, especially those idyllic gems that are little known and less traveled. Certainly, independent travelers who are not artists will also benefit from this blog.

With a few exceptions, this blog is not a guide to restaurants, lodging, rental cars, or shopping, (except for art supplies.)

Sprinkled among the posts are: my paintings, and a few Italian proverbs and poems written by notable Italian authors for whom I work as a translator.

Painting in France / Saint Paul de Vence

The acrylic on canvas painting above is from a photograph taken in the French village of Saint Paul de Vence. My artist friend Colleen Collin was kind enough to share the photograph with me. I love the contrast between the brightly colored bicycle and the ancient wall. The Painting is for sale on my Art Website:
Il quadro sopra e` fatto in acrilico su tela. E` dipinto da un foto che la mia amica Colleen Collin ha fatto nel villagio di Saint Paul de Vence in Francia. Mi piace il contrasto fra la bicicletta colorato vivamente ed il muro antico. Si puo` comprarlo al mio Web Site d'Arte"
