SNIPPETS OF ART ADVENTURES

At the end of Wednesday just saw that Central Italy was hit this day with a 6.earthquake and at least 120 people died. My thoughts are with them.

No matter where I am, the world is full of beauty, whether I am in Italy, or near my house.

Reflection and sand bank – into Italy
Can’t choose between the Glistening sandbank and the Glistening insulation behind the 9 feet canvas below (Weekend Reflect, ABC Wed.).

CanvasSupport_5759

Single mindedness was needed for this,
in the barn (studio) ready the end of April)
This canvas is 9 feet wide, but enough room for a canvas 40 feet wide and 15 feet tall. The canvas is rolled up on the bottom.

Hubby found a solution, by connecting the support to a pulley. When I’m done with the top part, I crank up the pulley, and then paint the middle part, and lastly the bottom part.
This way I can stay on the floor and do not need a scaffolding.  Happy, because this saves us a few K’s.

Cloudy Day Lucca_2167

Cloudy day above the monastery in Lucca, across from the same coffee place that we made our own for that week ($2.50 for a cappuccino!). Here I made a sketch across the street of the towers.

  1. I loved the Thistle and your GC painting!

    Will the paint crack when you roll up your canvas? It’s a neat system I sure hope it works! You have some BIG paintings in your head me thinks! 🙂

    Houses on the market in our price range have slowed to a slow annoying drip. I have no idea when something we like enough to go see will come up again. I’ll call or text if we head your way!

  3. Ingenius canvas solution! Looks like you enjoyed yourself while sipping reasonably priced and I bet delicious caps. The monastery shot is beatifully moody.

  4. I remember that wall in Lucca when we visited last year but the summer heat made it a bit uncomfortable when rushing through Lucca to see what we could see before heading to Pisa. If I could go back I would try to do it cooler climates. Nice post & door pic (we were also in Cinque Terre before heading inland).

  5. What a beautiful assortment of images. I am quite amazed with that blank canvas. I can hardly wait to see how you use it. Thank you so much for joining Friday’s Hunt. Hope you have a great week!

  6. Good morning Jesh, I always look forward to your posts. the first shot of the reflections and sand bank in Italy is lovely, and it is funny how so many people loved the door. I did too. Your grands are so sweet. Our grands make our world go round. Smile. Your studio is huge and your blank canvas will come alive with your art which I look forward to seeing finished. Amazing idea for rolling the canvas as you work.
    Have a lovely week and thank you for joining Blue Monday as always.
    xo,
    Jeanne
