Easter week and the tulips in the garden

“I love tulips better than any other Spring flower; they are the embodiment of alert cheerfulness and tidy grace, and next to a hyacinth look like a wholesome, freshly tubbed young girl beside a stout lady whose every movement weighs down the air with patchouli. Their faint, delicate scent is refinement itself; and is there anything in the world more charming than the sprightly way they hold up their little faces to the sun. I have heard them called bold and flaunting, but to me they seem modest grace itself, only always on the alert to enjoy life as much as they can and not be afraid of looking the sun or anything else above them in the face.”
― Elizabeth von Arnim, Elizabeth and her German Garden

Brushes, watercolors and the new year

Here we go. On a Winter Sunday afternoon of the new year 2023, we start sketching and paiting again. Tulips and gerberas are among the preferred floral subjects. Dip the brush in watercolors and then create, leaving light traces of color on the cotton paper. New ideas come in the air and we are here to wish everybody marvellous time filled with art.

A green terrace or a bright workplace with the sky for roof?

Can you tell, at Winter time, a bright green terrace with the sky for roof, a cozy place for enjoying gardening, planting new seeds and at-any-time-of-the-day-coffee-pause room, might turn to be a good workplace for developping ideas like a small gym where to train your mind and run your projects?
Enjoy a new February week, everybody☕

Around a small chocolate praline

From my photography archive

Once I took the chance to photograph a small chocolate delicacy, the one in the picture above and, before making the photography session, I wondered:

  • What ingredients are there in it?
  • How does it taste?
  • What is the process to make this small delicacy?
  • Is it an artisan or industrial product?

Here it is your chocolate praline. Is it inviting for a taste? Why? What is your opinion after having a taste of it?

A cosy view out there

Amalfi cotton paper cm 16 x cm 12 (500g/mg)

“The only prospect which is really desirable or delightful, is that from the window of the breakfast-room […] where we meet the first light of the dewy day, the first breath of the morning air, the first glance of gentle eyes; to which we descend in the very spring and elasticity of mental renovation and bodily energy, in the gathering up of our spirit for the new day, in the flush of our awakening from the darkness and the mystery of faint and inactive dreaming, in the resurrection from our daily grave, in the first tremulous sensation of the beauty of our being, in the most glorious perception of the lightning of our life; there, indeed, our expatiation of spirit, when it meets the pulse of outward sound and joy, the voice of bird and breeze and billow, does demand some power of liberty, some space for its going forth into the morning, some freedom of intercourse with the lovely and limitless energy of creature and creation.”
― John Ruskin, The Poetry Of Architecture: Or, The Architecture Of The Nations Of Europe Considered In Its Association With Natural Scenery And National Character

In my sketchbook an elegant urban lamp and its wrought ironed swirls is the subject of my drawing on this Saturday at the end of May. Indeed, these are the days natural light stays with us longer and longer and if you look up to the sky, perhaps you will see also little swallows fly and cheerfully play ring-a-ring-a-roses. Wishing everybody a good Sunday and be safe!

Der Frühling

Die Sonne glänzt, es blühen die Gefilde,
Die Tage kommen blütenreich und milde,
Der Abend blüht hinzu, und helle Tage gehen
Vom Himmel abwärts, wo die Tag entstehen.

Das Jahr erscheint mit seinen Zeiten
Wie eine Pracht, wo Feste sich verbreiten,
Der Menschen Tätigkeit beginnt mit neuem Ziele,
So sind die Zeichen in der Welt, der Wunder viele.

“I was for a while troubled with the haunting fear that if I handled the flower freely its bloom would fade—the sweet charm of freshness would leave it. I did not know then that it was no transitory blossom, but rather the radiant resemblance of one, cut in an indestructible gem.”

― Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre
