The Winter Sea

By paolafalconi   /     Jan 09, 2015  /     Inspiring moments

Hello friends,

after many festive days with family and friends, I decided to spend a few days in one of the places that I love most in the world: Villasimius. This is the magic place where I go when I need to rest and find myself.

When I was a child I used to come here with my family as a guest at my aunts’ place. The memories of such perfect moments, full of joy, amusement and serenity have always represented a perfect sense of peace and protection.

I know that I’m a bit reserved but in those days I walked by the sea with my dog, nobody was around me. The summer houses, that in the high season are full of people, were empty and silent, the beach was deserted, the sea was a little stormy and the sky, full of clouds with wonderful winter colors. Everything was in harmony and silent. I felt a surge of happiness: it was awesome!

Here some pictures I’ve taken of such wonderful moments, a treasure that I will keep for my art.

Art of nature: olive trees sculptures.

By paolafalconi   /     Oct 26, 2014  /     Inspiring moments

Today I’ve been in the countryside of  Villamassargia in a place called “S’Ortu Mannu”. Here you can find hundreds of secular olive trees that are 6 or 7 hundreds years old having been implanted between 1.300 B.C. and 1.600 B.C.

It’s a magical place where I have had the opportunity to admire  for another time the greatest artist of all: Mother Nature.

This olive tree is called “Sa Rejna – The Queen” and, according to some experts, it’s considered the biggest olive tree of all the Mediterranean see. I don’t know if it’s really true but for sure this tree is majestic. It’s 16 mt. diameter and at least 10 mt tall. But what is more interesting is that it’s really a living sculpture standing there for at least 7 hundreds year.
