Plein-air painting

I see everywhere in nature, trees for example, a strong expressive ability and, so to speak, a soul.
(Vincent Van Gogh)

Perspectives of a soul on Lake Como

Free to be is the complete freedom of seeing and feeling what every single soul perceives. Isolate your spirit and let it observe, investigate, listen, feel and vibrate… cuddle these vibrations and report them on your canvas with your lines and your colours. There’s nothing better than an inner search, a personal journey to discover oneself, to find the light that illuminate your colours, the glimpse that comes from your soul and set your emotions free. Let you get carried away from the bohémienne atmosphere of Bellagio with its old towns (borghi), its history, its traditional shops and ateliers, its water, its thousand colours and shades, its magic sunsets. It doesn’t matter if it’s raining or the sun is too strong, you will be followed and protected by our personnel, which is always at your complete disposal. Create your own artworks, special pages from your personal journal that indelibly mark your free spirit.
