I live in an island where winter is short and it is not very cold.
Summer is very long and warm and with a lot of humidity.With some difficulty I create and design and I have difficulties to focus on my work because of tourists and noise.
Therefore my true Spring is the Autumn and Winter.
I Focus, I create, I do not have distractions, I am in the studio everyday and 'my spirit is eager to get back to...the space of creating...like food for my soul',like says Marilyn (Radzat).
Do you create despite everything?
How far does your concentration reach?

When I sleep I often dream of creations that then come in the next day.
My dreams are often complex and full of colours. My oniric activity is essential for the things I create. I love to dream, yet I do not expect to dream. The dream comes soft and smooth and i don't even know it does. Sometimes I begin to think of something that I want to create and my eyes start to close... Sleep regenerates the cells.
Sleep renews ideas, Sleep keeps warm the seed that tomorrow will begin to grow, Even now the seed is emerging...Also your seed!

Even now that the sun is setting, the sky is wonderful, like a blue jewel
I adore the winter,
but today I smell a very inviting air of Spring...
I am the earth, I am the sky, I am Winter, I am Spring. I smell Nature, I eat the air, I see the sounds of the earth.
I have worked on this brooch for 10 hours, I used mother-of-pearl, paua shells, weaved silver wire and silver charms and beads (a little dragonfly, a little frog, a sugilite stone, also known as luvulite)
This is my thanks to the Universe that has created so much beauty!

I am the only human model that I have at hand!And it is very fun to play with my own image, You too,try and play with your image!
This painting is called Icon.
I have played with the Byzantine painting, rich of gold and metallic contrasts.
I have added a 'tactile' element made with yarn of wool and silk. Also the painting that I used is very tactile: the layers of color are similar to lumps. I did not glue the yarn everywhere because I wanted the yarn to move in the air.
The child above the head is the new, new ideas, the change.The butterflies... I simply adore them, but They are also very common symbols!
For me, a Painting is created for the eyes and hands...and a little for the ears, the yarn rustles in the wind!

Puglia is white, with white houses and white walls.
While you are on the plane you can view these white cities and the white clouds.
But when you walk in the countryside, near the low stone walls near the fields (grape, artichokes, vegetables, fruit trees) you can see the natural sculptures of olive trees.
For italians, Puglia (the region of South Italy) IS olive oil (and olive trees) wine fields and red earth.
These are photos near my house, where I go during my winter holidays.
Fantastic natural sculptures!
...each trunk has a unique life, each trunk of tree is carved by the wind...Every tree is hundreds of years old!
I can not stop touching and to photographing these trees, I am in love with these plants carved and sculpted!
In many cities of South Italy, the tradition is to plant an olive tree when a child is born.
This is my wish for the birth of this new year, a strong and harmonious 2009!
