Peaceful fishes

In this painting I wanted to express the feeling of tranquility and well-being that arouse while observing the fishes swimming in the water.

I’m amazed by their movements and I love the silence surrounding them.

In questo quadro ho voluto esprimere la sensazione di tranquillità e pace che mi provocano i pesci quando li guardo nuotare nell’acqua.

Mi incantano coi loro movimenti armoniosi e mi piace il silenzio che li avvolge.

A perfect relaxing weekend activity: carving stamps.

By paolafalconi   /     Oct 05, 2014  /     Illustrations, My art

Today is sunday, the sky is blue and I think that by the sea should be fantastic, even if it’s october 5th and fall has arrived.
Despite the family discussions on how to spend this sunday, at the end we have chosen to stay home and relax. I’ve immediately took advantage of this situation to do an activity that I love so much, also because is a sort of sculpting exercise, my very first love.
Last june we’ve done a trip to New York and through airbnb we rented a house in the 15th, near the Greenwich Village. My house was very close to a fantastic little artist’s shop called The Ink Pad. Here I’ve found all the tools and materials needed to do carving stamps and once back home I’ve started to test this technique having a lot of fun.
Here some pictures of my collection that is growing slowly, every time I’ve some moments to spend on it.
I’ve used “Speedball” for carving and “Staedtler Master Carve” Artist Carving Block.
I hope I’ve inspired you to find a new relaxing and creative activity. With such stamps you can personalize your stationary, books and any kind of paper you use in your daily life.
I wish you fantastic moments with the ones you care.
