Painting in Italy! I would like to spend a few months, painting in Italy. I spent a month on each of my two visits, one traveling by train in central and northern Italy, and one in the regions of Ravenna and Emilia Romagno. Everything Italian is very exciting to me, because it's new to me, and I consider Italy my birthright and would like to make Italy my second home with dual citizentship. I am currently studying the language.

Art isn't just about what mediums you use, or what subjects. Art becomes a way of life. Once you enter the art mode, and begin to study history of art, world art, ethnic art, religious art and the desired mode of art (for me it is drawing and painting, 2 dimensional illusionist art, it takes over your mind and body and so you just live for it. Everything else is second place. Whether combining your art with a message to the world, or exploring design, color and mediums, you are in a different stage of what you are doing, and it all becomes part of how the visiotrs, the viewers of your art, get to know you. Changes in consciousness, aging, changes in your life, will affect your art and send you into a different period of expression. Art, copying, imagining, feeling, ae all aspects which more or less come through you, as effortlessly as the flight of a bird.

For these are the times that try men's souls.
“Must the citizen ever for a moment, or in the least degree, resigns his conscience to the legislator? Why has every man a conscience then? I think that we should be men first, and subjects afterward.”
― Henry David Thoreau, Civil Disobedience and Other Essays

Art becomes a way of life and all morality, social stuff and technical stuff become vehicles for understanding of my existence and why I paint. History of art has many phases of why people attempted to create visual imagery, which included symbols for language and proportioning of natural forms.

I would like to spend a few months studying classical painting in Italy. I spent a month on each of my two visits, each time making some scratches on paper one could consider sketches or feelings of what I saw. In 1999 I traveled in notherrn and central Italy by train and stayed in youth hostels. In 2011 I stayed in the regions of Ravenna and Emilia Romagno. Everything about Italy is very interesting to me, partly because it's new to me, and partly because Italy is my birthright on my father's side. I am currently studying the language, and watching Italian films at the UCB.
