A midweek quiet morning

By paolafalconi   /     Oct 01, 2014  /     Illustrations, My art

Hello friends,
today, after having brought my daughters to school, I’ve gone to the grove close to my house with my dog Jack.
While walking I was thinking that fall is one of my preferred periods of the year.
The grove was quiet and silent and I was enchanted by the pines’ shadows reflected on the ground.

I like underwood and its shadows have always made me daydream, bringing me in a fantastic and undefined world.

Tales and story books, gnomes and cartoons.

By paolafalconi   /     Sep 25, 2014  /     Illustrations, My art

I’ve always loved tales and story books.

When I was young the opportunities to see cartoons on telly were very rare. Only once a week, on sunday morning. And then I grew up spending my days reading and dreaming on my story books.
I still love them today and I collect them a lot as they are a wonderful source of inspiration.
This afternoon I was working in my studio and while I was totally immersed in my activities my daughter Carolina came to me very proud and happy to show me an house of gnomes that she created in the garden.
I suddenly had to take a picture ๐Ÿ™‚

Daily duties and art escape.

By paolafalconi   /     Sep 16, 2014  /     Illustrations, My art

Dear friends,
holidays are now weeks away, the kids are finally back to school and I’m back to my daily duties as mother, wife and artist.
I love my role in the family, it’s tough and intense. Sometimes I would love to take a break as I do during holidays but it’s impossible!
Anyway, as an artist I have a secret weapon that never fails: take my hours off, grab a sheet, my colors, my brushes and …..ESCAPE with my fantasy.
