2022 in Pisticci…A good weekend’s work…

It was nice to have something less stressful to work on today. Portraits for other people are always a bit worrying. However working for myself is fun, interesting and challenging.  ( mostly)

This worked out better than I thought .
Changed several things in  this. It’s not quite how I envisaged it, but it’s  okay.

It was a good start to the day as I was outside by 5.30am with coffee and  David Hockney. I wonder if what I’m reading will affect my painting. Today I wondered if his French digital paintings made me feel happy because he was happy painting them.

5.30am in Via Custoza. Food for the soul……
And a nice colourful breakfast…….

It’s been hot again today, but we are working up to storms on Tuesday and then a drop in temperatures.

It was absolutely fine working with the fan a few feet away.

Tomorrow my plan is to start work on the next local scene. If I can do 3 a week that would be good.( 4 would be better.)

Now my work diary is up to date. The flowers are watered , my new paintings are hung up and I want a glass of wine.



  1. Hi Anne; I so wish I could be up early like you< I would get a lot more done. But the jet lag just never leaves me when I come East, so I am up until 3 AM and asleep until….late. This lasts more and more the older I get. Going the other way is a snap! Anyway, keep up the good work.

    • Jet lag sounds horrible. It’s not difficult to get up early when I usually fall asleep about 9pm….or maybe that should be the other way around.
      But right now it’s absolutely the best and coolest time of day.
