My Christmas present to me... a box of oil colours what a lovely surprise to find them all wrapped in their own little bubble wrap jackets
Mi sono dato per Natale... una scatola dei colori che bella sorpresa di trovare ciascuno avvolti nel loro giacchine di pluriball

Been working on some sculptures lately. These are smaller than your fist and are inspired by small roman and etruscan bronzes … others are larger… thinking about what we recognise as human. How our brains look for faces in everything and how figures however disfigured register with us… More laters...

I love our morning walks with Ugo. Trouble is I often get left behind taking photos of mud and the like. here are a few I took this morning. It is so incredible to me how these plants, this earth, this sky can be so much of the countryside and yet so gritty, graphic and abstract. So much work to do - buzzing with ideas.

Things I love about Italy… I have been down to the local blacksmith - still pretty common in these parts… and he's going to make me some steel frames for these couple of paintings (red on red on red and blue/black). I'm really hoping that this will turn out to be an answer to an ongoing issue for me.

I know it's not everyone's cup of tea but che meraviglia I found on a pre pranzo quick walk just now - reminds me of the sculpture work I need to get time for - nagging away the pile of iron scroungings I'm collecting for the purpose. This find was swiftly followed up by a sounder of boar complete with "boarlets"- all making quite a racket and far too close for comfort - Ugo barking we high tailing it out of there. Luckily they decided to go the other way - fantastic to see them running full tilt through a newly mowed grove. This is the second sighting we've had in less than a week which is unusual in broad daylight. Sadly they are far too quick for decent photos. Maybe next time.

I wouldn't say I'm all that fond of ants, they bite for one thing, but you have to hand it to them I think they are probably our closest relative the busy lives sense always fiddling about doing something. Spotted this this morning when walking Ugo. A very nice and quite unusual example of their industry. Anish Kapoor eat your heart out.

Adrian asked me the other day if red onions were red, (interesting conversations we have) I said certo they are red…. and then… well depending on the light… same onion different light. Not to mention different eyes. In a bit I'll post the painting inspired initially by the tomato and then by the onion
