Wellcome in my new place


“... I would like, if possible, to move to Ticino. It is best suited for my work, and I must think of my work, for I have been thrust away from it for so long.”
So wrote Hans Purrmann, famous german Painter, (Speyer 1880 - Montagola 1966) and great master of colours.
Hans Purrmann chose as place to live the Swiss canton Ticino, as well as his friend Hermann Hesse who said about this place:
"Here the sun is more intense and warmer, the mountains are redder, here grow chestnuts, grapes, almonds and figs. The people are good, well-mannered and friendly ..."

Well, I have chosen the same, and now I'm here in the Swiss canton Ticino in Locarno between lake and mountains, rivers, waterfalls and golden sunsets ,  as I like to define "the place to have sun".

In balance - Lago Maggiore, november 2011


PS: I postponed the publication of my book, my moving me totally busy and then you know that the relocation is always an earthquake for the soul, for better or for worse, then it is right to follow the heart.
I set up my new studio and I hope to publish it later this year or early next year at most.
I set up my new studio and started to work at new paintings and at the book, I hope to publish it later this year or early next year at most.

Cara Laura,
Welcome Back! I hope the move went smoothly, though as one who moves every couple of years, the task is always difficult for mind and body.
We will all be happy to see your new studio and the work you produce there. May happiness envelope you there like a warm blanket.
Missed you!
Sincerely,
Gary.
