Marc, what you do is amazing, always.
Also, seemingly unprovoked I had a strange dream about Ben Fenske the other night.
He was a she. He, now a she, had received sex reassignment surgery. She was very happy.
Hi Marc. Where is Lago Maggiore? Great paintings of course! Please ask Ben to post his paintings someday in the next year or two. Please let me know any workshop dates for 2013. I will be choosing vacation weeks at work soon. Hope to see you in Carmel. Sincerely, Carl
Great work Marc, it’s always a treat when you post new paintings. I love that tree on the “Lago d’Orta”
Hi Marc. Another group of brilliant paintings.. It was interesting watching the time lapse video. It made me wonder if you always paint top to bottom, left to right..
Hi Jeff, I was taught to always key the sky first, so I usually start at the top. The left to right isn’t for any particular reason.
Carl, Lago Maggiore is up in Northern Italy, on the border with Switzerland. It’s a beautiful area.
Valdemar, always a pleasure to hear from you.
Hi Marc, I really enjoyed watching that timelapse video.
Thank you for that.
I wish you much joy in your work!
That calm water is magic. Thank you for sharing your work.
Always a treat to view a new group of your amazing paintings. I always pick a favorite which would be Monte Leone for it’s earthy quality. Are you in a flooded area of Italy? Looks so awful. Best of luck with your new exhibit.
