2023 in Pisticci….2 days off…..

Probably I need to work on getting more energetic……

If I was in Scotland I could “hire ” my daughter who has just started out as a personal trainer.

Working for about 4 hours a day shouldn’t be so exhausting.

Though I suppose there are several other hours spent “practising.”

Dreaming that I am painting doesn’t really count .

Anyways I have 2 days off, to work on 2 commissions, a portrait, a sign, and something else which I haven’t bothered to translate yet.

Not to finish any of these things, but just to plan them all .

Anyways I’m very fortunate to have work. And I might have another mural to paint soon. Or 3………

It was a lovely morning again…though chilly.

Setting off for the piazza
Lovely light. I even like the wires.
I like doors
There’s something interesting about this view
Just for fun ….self portrait with work lorries.

It was a bit of an experimental day painting leaves and magnolia flowers. I might have a system now. I’ve another 7 to paint as well as some other additions.

Added a branch in the middle. Spent ages on 2 flowers and am still not happy with the first one.

There is much more to mural painting than merely painting , at least for me . It’s a bit of an honour or privilege to paint on someone’s wall. I don’t know how to put it into words.

This afternoon after the gas man came , and now I don’t need to worry about the gas running out, I painted a small sign on an old terracotta tile.

Now I’m finished for today.

It’s wine time, Saturday evening, and I don’t have to get up early tomorrow morning.

Blissful sigh …….cheers🍷🍷
