What I have drawn… Part I

When I first moved to Genoa fifteen years ago, an artist friend suggested I enroll in an art-class at the local art institute, L’Accademia Ligustica. I could do it for free! I bought paper, pencils & oil pastels and showed up. The class was filled mostly with young & silly girls or ghastly thin boys. The rest were all foreigners, like myself, and much older than the others. There were two instructors, a man and a woman in a wheelchair. I cannot recall the gentleman’s name… a handsome fellow, nice air about him, ound him always helpful. The woman’s name is Sabrina Marzagalli… a charming & gracious and a magnificently curious person. Between these two professors were invented exercises which threw me for an absolute artistic loop. The one I loved the most though, initially, it was raw panic, was to capture the models as they calmly waltz around the hall… hanger… or stationary in brief, fleeting poses, wherever. Here are a few examples…

What I am painting… Beginning of March

I put paint and move it around letting it tell me how an image of a landscape can happen. Imagination for invention…
