My “artist’s retreat ” has been booked all summer and the last people left on saturday. Next year i would like to increase the proportion of creative people staying there as now i am confident that the house is good, the atmosphere is conducive to creativity and I was right, Pisticci is special. I have something unique to offer – and that is an affordable space to create in- in a special place. (I keep seeing an advert which says “you don’t need therapy , you need to go to Italy”- probably true!)
Check out the house and reviews on AIRBNB. – small, artist’s house , Pisticci. I am more than happy to help out with info and places to go. If you have ever dreamed of taking a month off and spending it painting or writing or whatever then this is the perfect place to get away from it all and find what you are looking for.
I am not normally so er forthright but it seems from all the feedback I have had that this is indeed a special area and well worth spending time in.
I have made the prices to suit people who can’t afford to go on a weeks art course but could afford a month’s stay here.
So apart from enjoying meeting all the people staying in my “artist’s retreat” I have been busy painting on a wall in Marconia. I am so very happy to have been invited to take part in this public art project. Next month we should be starting an even bigger work in Pisticci.
I have not been painting so much in my studio- other than 2 portraits this week – due to two little mice in my studio. http://moltobrava.blogspot.com (tale of two mice, dropping bugs and a frog…)
