Picnic&Painting at Carsulae in Umbria, Italy

Comments (0) Senza categoria

Having lived in Umbria for 9 years, I’m almost embarassed to say that I had never visited the archeological area of Carsulae.  

So when my friend Francesca* invited me for a picnic late last summer, I simply couldn’t refuse. I packed my easel, paints and some munchies and headed for the hills around Terni, Italy.

It’s one of the most impressive archeological sites in Italy and dates back to around 300 B.C.

There’s a beautiful arch, amphitheater, Roman baths and the Church of S.Cosima and Damiano and walking the grounds you get the feeling of walking through history. 


 I took advantage of the warm weather and painted the ruins and the surrounding hill.

Later in the afternoon there was an Italian folk musica gathering and we had the lovely surprise of listening to various groups from all over Italy.

If you visit Umbria, please don’t miss out on this enchanting place. 

What: Roman ruins & music festival
When: from Spring to Autumn
Where: San Gemini exit off the E45 highway 
Cost: €5 entrance gets you inside the site and museum.

Custom Paintings & Hand Painted Boxes for the Holidays

Comments (0) Senza categoria

I’m very excited about offering Custom Oil Paintings this Fall. Just think how exciting it would be great to receive a custom painting of your home, the church you where you were married in or even the picturesque town where you got engaged.  I enjoy working with different clients from various countries and cultures and am always curious and surprised by their requests.  

I love simplicity and quality and I embed these values in my paintings by using only the finest Italian oil paints & supports.  When you purchase a Barragan Painting you’re buying a timeless original that will last for generations.  Visit my Custom Painting section in my Etsy Shop.

I’ve always loved boxes and have recently started to produce a series of Hand Painted Wood Boxes.  I’m inspired by the typical Italian marble decoration of Scagliola that would often include landscape inserts.  These round wood boxes are decorated using traditional Italian materials such as lacquer, oil paints, crimson, faux gold & silver leaf.  They are perfect little gifts for a special person that appreciates beauty and quality.  Have a look at my Hand Painted Boxes in my Etsy Shop
