Natura Morta con Muffa


NATURA MORTA CON MUFFA (Still Life with Mildew)

Since I can't beat it, I figured I could find beauty in it! Thick stone walls combined with central heating can cause some interesting things to grow on one's walls. Come Spring we hope to get the painters in and then, maybe, I'll look back fondly on our Muffa. And in the Spring the dry pods can be replaced with new poppies. Maybe then this watercolour will have a companion.

I very, very much love this one.
I am now sketching our sunflowers, senza vita. This work is my new inspiration.

Thank you all for commenting - it is most appreciated and that you really like the painting is a double bonus.

Marta - This is 26cm x 40cm - BIG for me!

Casey - I know you are being super kind using the 'inspiration' word but I'm holding it close and repeating it with a grin.

Robyn,

I love your blog! I have just now revisited mine, only to find that you had left me a comment sometime (who knows when?) and so I followed you here. I'm glad I did! Thank you for commenting.

How lovely to live in Tuscany! I plan to visit your blog regularly.

HWEM here again. Just thought I'd let you know that, if you're missing one of your brushes, I'm using it to paint over the mildew on the wall.

Leslie - Thank you! I remember you from the wonderful sketchbook thread Katherine Tyrrell treated us to on WetCanvas. She's a real inspiration. Congratulations on starting blogging again.

HWEM - I think you must still be tripping on the thrill of having passed your Italian Driving Theory Test this morning!
