This summer, that summer

August, time for an update.
Finally I feel at home, I feel good.
Smell, color and inside feelings, all is as in the summers i lived too many years ago in Liguria where I was born. It's really amazing how our soul can relive sensations in such a clear way and I almost get emotional every day.

I'm taking advantage of good weather and sun, always trying be face to face with 




Hier my actually work. It's still in progress

I love the cosy atmosphere in your painting. It feels safe. Protected. I get the feeling I had when I was a child and we had friends and family over for coffee and cake. My stomach already felt sick because of the heavy cream cake...but I was happy being surrounded by all the people I loved and of course still love...

Joop Zand said...

Your work is always so wonderful Laura,
i like the colors you using....it's pleasant to see this lovely work.

Summer greetings from the dutch coast, Joop

Lisa Graham Art said...

You look lovely Laura. And you look happy. I love your painting in progress. We used to celebrate birthdays for everyone in our family...cousins, aunts, uncles, everyone...and your painting brings back those birthday gathering memories.

ADRIAN said...

It's good to see you are still working.
Have fun.

Volver a casa, a los olores y sabores de la infancia, a los pasajes que nos vieron crecer, es la mejor forma de aprovechar unas vacaciones, de relajarse y sentir que todo está bién.
Esa tarta está para comérsela!!!!.
¡Feliz estancia!.

Jean Spitzer said...

Beautiful WIP--and glad you are doing well.

Dan Gliubizzi said...

Both images are beautiful! Is being so happy good for an expressionist? LOL!

Quanta gioia di vivere! Buona estate anche a te!

erin said...

here you are! i was just thinking of you the other day and wondering about you. and here you are! you are so beautiful))) face, body, symmetry, all of that, of course, but your spirit! i wonder why it is that it has seemed that you have been hidden over the years of blogging, revealing only small parts of yourself? or perhaps there is a clarity in this as well, a deeper truth (?) it is so good to see you and your painting, it is a wonderful place to spend a great deal of time.

me? we have moved from our house of ten years into a two bedroom apartment, awaiting immigration to the states. i am sitting alongside rivers, smiling at shy mennonite women eager for icecream cones, working toward the moment of simplicity:)

Il dipinto è bellissimo e comunica gioia, coinvolgendoci nel tuo stato d'animo sereno, che attraverso i tuoi occhi appare luminoso e lieto come un porto accogliente dopo una lunga navigazione in acque tempestose.

DeniseSCARAMAI said...

I'm fine... glad to know that you feel at home; the 'air' of summer revived your good sensations, that's great!
and better still admire your work in progress: enchanting and tempting - is wonderful, Laura.
you're a lovely and peaceful semblant - mille baci, caríssima!

I like your colors and shapes.. intense and personal!!!
Nice to see you back... see you!

Elizabeth Anderson said...

"It's really amazing how our soul can relive sensations in such a clear way and I almost get emotional every day." I too experience this sensation. I think it's because my life feels like a running river passing by so quickly. Even though I don't try to be face to face with myself suddenly there I am.

Take care Laura. Enjoy every delicious moment. Your paintings reflect a sensitive soul.

Mari Jose Molina said...

Wonderful painting, love the colors you using.. Cheers!

Pierre BOYER said...

Enjoy your day...

Harry Kent said...

So lovely to read to read of you celebrating the sun and summer. The photo is filled with light, much of it your own. You fair glow. Yet you also know the shadow, the darkness in the soul. The struggle between the two is what lends such passion to your painting.

Bravo for such wonderful work!

Andrew Finnie said...

Hey Laura, well silly me, I went back to look at your painting and now I am hungry, so if, when you come back, half your cake is gone then you cabn guess the culprit. I've been painting flowers lately and I love how yours are so juicy! That's an interesting blue diagonal and I am wondering where it will lead? Oneof our famous flower painters here took the Japanese lead and started composing her still lifes in a zig zag pattern so I wonder if your work will zig or zag? I wish mine would :) And boy, you are very photogenic !!
Sorry I am slack, I am having trouble keeping up with breathing at the moment, but soon will be back posting sillyness everywhere
greetings from under ground :)

PS summer must be nearly over. We need winter to make spring so gorgeous eh? And old age to make being young so attractive, Spring is wasted on those who have no winter....

Andrew Finnie said...

Oh I'm looking to seeing more of your work!
