The joy of everyday things

I love everyday things: picking the kids up from school, cooking dinner for my family and eating all together, following the changes of season in the garden from my window, the movements of nature.

La scoperta

La Scoperta.
Acrylic on canvas 60×60 cm

The realization of the beauty within everyday things brings joy to life. To capture the expression of child in a moment of discovery, of a flower, of some other thing, is a kind of magic which reminds me of the verses of Garcia Lorca: “bright blue star, navel of the dawn”. 

Wishing you all a Sunday spent in the company of those you love.

La gioia nelle cose quotidiane

Mi piacciono le cose di tutti i giorni: andare a prendere miei figli a scuola, cucinare e cenare insieme alla mia famiglia; guardare fuori dalla finestra la natura che cambia a seconda delle stagioni.

Quando mi rendo conto della bellezza che c’è nelle cose ordinarie, trovo la felicità. Ritrarre un bambino nel momento in cui scopre un fiore o qualsiasi altra cosa mi incanta e mi fa venire in mente questi versi di Garcia Lorca: “ chiara stella azzurra, ombelico dell’aurora”.

Buona domenica in compagnia di chi amate, amici.
