Barragan Paintings Auctions on Ebay this Week

Comments (0) Senza categoria

This week I’m auctioning off a series of recent oil paintings on Ebay.  You can find a few Umbrian Italian Landscapes and vegetable still lifes.  Have a look!

 

 

 

About me
I’m a Painter.
I feel very lucky to have chosen to live in this
little hill town in Central Umbria and to make it my home. It’s
peaceful and is known for its endless landscapes of hills, olive trees,
vines and sunsets. This is also the land of Saint Francis, Catherine
and Benedict. I honestly can’t think of a better place to paint!


Just like you, I enjoy finding and marveling at apparently insignificant
things such as wildflowers picked on a morning walk, a local fruit
right out of an orchard, or an Italian landscape especially at sunset
when the colors warm up.

I love simplicity & quality and I
embed these values in my paintings by using only the finest Italian oil
paints and supports. When you purchase a Barragan Painting you’re
buying a timeless original that will last for generations. Each
painting is signed on the front & back and sold with a Certificate
of Authenticity.

Botanical Garden in Brera, Milan

Comments (0) Senza categoria

My daughter is in film school in Milan so this means that I’m often in the northern Italian provincial capital visiting her.

I’m a curious person and I don’t like crowds so when I heard about the Brera Botanical Garden in the center of Milan, I couldn’t resist and headed over there.  It was quite easy to find and about 250mt. from the Monteleone metro stop at Via Brera 28.

Eventhough it was late February, I was surprised to find quite a bit of flowering going on. (list)  
I’m certain it must be a real treat in late Spring when the larger trees will offer a much desired shat and freshness from the city cement.

There are comfy wooden benches throughout and I took advantage to rest and sketch some of the Galanthus that had just started blooming along with the Chimonanthus.

It’s a rather small garden, just 5000sqm. located at the end of a private street nestled among historical palazzi in one of Milan’s more charming neighborhoods. 

It has a wide variety of plants from all over the world. It’s small, sweet and very well maintained with clear and thorough plant tags.  If you’re looking for a quiet, green area to rest then this botanical garden is the perfect place.

Fun Friday: Caption this Painting by Berthe Marie Pauline Morisot

Comments (0) Senza categoria

Today’s painter is Berthe Marie Pauline Morisot (January 14, 1841 – March 2, 1895). I first learned about her in my Women Artists class at the university.  Besides being one of my favorite painters, she was a member of the circle of painters in Paris who became known as the Impressionists. She was described by Gustave Geffroy in 1894 as one of “les trois grandes dames” of Impressionism alongside Marie Bracquemond and Mary Cassatt
