Palazzo Carafa


The Good Will

It was a sunny Sunday in the heart of Lecce and I was inspired by the flags waving against the blue sky. 

As I sat up my easel at the corner of the sidewalk, I realize I had brought no turps to thin my paint. I lifted a tip to the porter of a nearby fancy hotel and after a while he got me some stain remover from the hotel storage. Sorry, I have to 'stain' the canvas not clean it! Wait -- he said, and 20 minuts later he brought me some kind of detergent. Never mind -- at least I can clean my brushes! Thanks for the good will.
 
Love all the ancient names of 2000 years old city: Palazzo Carafa (ex Monastero delle Paoline, right flags) and the Palazzo di Giustizia (left). In the background the Chiesa del Gesù or Chiesa del Buon Consiglio

Portrait of Irene


A Spanish girl with her flamenco ribbon was supposed to pose for my demo of Nov 23th. Irene took her place at the last minute for a 90 mins sitting. Irene was born in the mountains of the former Austrian part of Italy. Can you get the difference? [Irene -- Oil on canvas board 20 x 30 cms (8 x 12 inc) -- SOLD]
