Positano Summer Italy Original Watercolor Paintings Amalfi Coast

Summer Vibrations Positano Amalfi Coast. This is an original watercolor painting.

I have never visited Amalfi but one day I will. I will travel the Amalfi Coast and see all these amazing sites. Experience the culture that I love. The Italian culture filled with vibrancy, passion, joy of living. Not looking into a devise, disengaged with whoever sits at the table with me, but gaze into eyes, watch the blue sea with her dancing glistening lights. Allow my minds to absorb the vibration of summer. One day I will do all that. Buy my art and I will get closer to this dream. In my heart I feel I have been there, maybe in another life, maybe in my astral travels. I paint my dreams.

Some factoids about Positano Italy

Positano is a cliff side village on southern Italy’s Amalfi Coast. It’s a well-known holiday destination with a pebble beachfront and steep, narrow streets lined with boutiques and cafes. Its Chiesa di Santa Maria Assunta features a majolica-tiled dome and a 13th-century Byzantine icon of the Virgin Mary. The Sentiero degli Dei hiking trail links Positano to other coastal towns. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Positano

Recently I had the pleasure to be invited to a nice couple's home to show some of my art. On that occasion I got to drink some of the famed Limoncello.

Made from the lemons called "sfusato amalfitano" is is a sweet but lemony liquor that warms your toes! 
A real treat it was. Thank you Laura and Harry for your hospitality and for purchasing some of my art prints!

Amalfi is famous for it's outstanding and unusually large lemons. I painted a few of them over the past years. They have dimples and such a rumply, textured skin, it's an artists delight to paint them. Amalfi if probably one of Italy's most visited cities, located on the Gulf of Salerno, in the region of Campagnia in the province of Salerno, it attracts people from around the world that appreciate the culture and the maritime lifestyle. I have been there many times in my dreams. Whenever I go to see and experience it in person, I will make sure to also visit the "Museum of Handmade Paper" that would be a great interest to me. Amalfi was one of the main places where handmade paper was made and it is said the Amalfitans learned the craft from the Arabs.

This painting is my vision or interpretation of sailing past Amalfi and seeing it broken up in colorful pixels. The modern Impressionist almost abstract approach is one I favor.

Art prints sold to set designers for gone

I already love the TV show GONE … here is why !

Well today I sold six art prints from my galleries on ginetteprints.com 
That’s is fantastic. Wish every day was a six prints day.

These art prints will hopefully be used in an upcoming TV series called “Gone”! Gone is an American procedural drama series. I dig these type of shows anyway. 
TV shows and movies have what’s called set design and they use art in the design process. They license art or as in my case purchase prints, and later may or may not use them. You can read more about the show here: click on this link. Full cast and info on IMDB

The show is an international production by NBC Universal International and will be shot in Pittsburgh. Joining NBC as partners in the production are expected to be Germany-based RTL and TF1, based in France. 

Based on the novel One Kick by Chelsea Cain, the drama “tells the fictional story of Kit “Kick” Lannigan (Leven Rambin), survivor of a famous child-abduction case, and Frank Booth (Chris Noth), the FBI agent who rescued her.” 

So when I was approached by this company about art and read about the story of GONE, I was all ears. Sounds like it’s going to be a great plot and story to tell. As a survivor of child abuse, I relate to such stories. Child abuse survivor stories like this one I have to watch! I understand the main character becomes a martial arts expert and enters the FBI to work on abductions cases. Whatever happen to you in life, if it doesn’t kill you it will make you stronger. That’s for sure!

Art prints sold to set designers for gone

So set designers look for art. Set designers are in charge of, well…. designing sets for scenes in movies or TV shows. What they do is an artform in itself, creating the mood or background for a scene, character for the story that is being told. It’s very cool.

So they need art to hang on walls. I was approached about using my art and they ended up buying these prints today. I was told the set designer loves my work. Not sure why these paintings were specifically picked, but they are innocent and whimsical floral paintings and maybe that is why. One is an oil “On The Way To Grandma There Is A Tree I Love”!
So maybe one or all will end up somewhere on the set of “Gone”! I hope so and I hope I get more opportunities like this.

 

 

 

If you are going to watch that show and see my art let me know, I will be tickled to death about it.
Shoot me a message    
I really want to see if I can follow this show. I don’t have cable so maybe they will have it on Amazon. I hope so.                      
If you are a set designer and are looking for art contact me. I am always willing to work with new clients!
