february………….

Have decided that as I think February is the most miserable of months to make some plans to compensate.

Have ordered 27 new canvas boards – 7 of which are square (40x40cms) and challenge myself to use them all this month.  I don’t know what I will do with them but something fun- not commissions.

I have joined #landfebruary on twitter and am considering painting the view from the end of my street every day- small canvas and big brush so that I learn how to paint landscapes better and without being too detailed.

Am planning some travel, perhaps to Matera to see  Ben Hur being filmed and take some photos for future reference. Also I had thought of painting on site there in the summer but after my failure to do so in Pisticci…..we will see.

Am considering writing “bloginos” ( very short posts ) on my http://moltobrava.blogspot.com  site , to deal with the worry which prevents me from writing anything bigger.

Have a few spa type ideas in mind.

And finally I am looking at getting a washing machine for my “arthouse” , which means when the next guests arrive there will be wifi, a pellet stove  and a washine machine. So will be possible to be warm, clean and connected. Anyone wanting to stay in my Arthouse please contact me for details. I would prefer to have people stay for a least 2 weeks to fully appreciate their time there but  if you only stay for a week – you would probably want to come back so……

(Am also on Airbnb)

Have been very busy all January painting commissions so as some of them were gifts I won’t post them just yet. So instead here are some photos of Pisticci over the last two months,  my first 2 small landscapes, and  2 of my arthouse.
