2022 in Pisticci….it really is beautiful here…

Even after 17 years I still get a thrill looking around Pisticci.

View when walking up to the corsa.
Impossible to capture the loomingness of the church….but I keep trying…without actually lying down in the road.
This morning in the valley. Blue mountains 

The weather is lovely. Around 30C and cooler in the evenings.

I slept in my attic  last night again. It has been okay sleeping on a mattress on the floor in my gallery , but my attic feels like a proper bedroom.

Even dusted all the books …….

Mostly today I’ve worked on my new portrait. It’s coming along nicely using my new brushes.

I’m especially pleased with myself for experimenting with the background digitally.

I downloaded a photo of the portrait as it is so far and then digitally painted in a background to see if it would work. I think it looks great and tomorrow I can paint it for real, with confidence.

I needed more paracetamols, wine , carrots and exercise so took a walk up town .

Chatted in the butcher’s while buying wine. Met a client in the farmacia and wished the singing fruit and veg man a ‘ good evening’. And greeted various other people on the way up the hill.

I am appreciating contact with people.

However now I’m happy to be home alone ,drinking wine and relaxing.

Cheers 🍷🍷
