It has been too long that Mario Cappelletti from La Bottega in Castellina in Chianti has asked me for new paintings. I promised that after the GMAC I would work for him so from now until the end of the year I'm dedicating my time to new Tuscan paintings. It is refreshing to return to a subject matter that I worked on from 1990 to 2006. The first years were a discovery, riding on a 200E beige colored vespa into the Tuscan hills and painting from life under rainstorms or at sunrise.
I'll be posting photos of some of the most historic moments when I lived in Chianti and worked in La piazza. Great times. Refreshing it is also to relook old palette combinations with a sure hand and the desire for abstraction. The above photo was taken with my HTC mobile and needs to be replaced with a high resolution image when the batteries recharge for my digital camera. It is a messy looking painting but I like it.
