Immagine & Poesia 2017 Poetry on Line

I am very pleased to participate for the 3rd year to the online poetry anthology:

Immagine & Poesia E Book 2017

Immagine & Poesia 2017

Here is my entry with painting and short poem:

Immagine and Poesia - Breaking Dawn

 

 

What ‘s better than Lawrence Ferlinghetti’s words to introduce the 2017 edition of Immagine & Poesia E Book ?

In the words bearers of light we see every and each one of you Poets and Artists, you who have sent your contributions from different geographical areas and different cultural backgrounds, showing that Art and Poetry can open a way to Beauty and to Peace.
 Let’s see this beautiful anthology as a little step towards mutual understanding and sincere friendship.
Once again special thanks to Lawrence Ferlinghetti, poet-icon of the Beat Generation and to Agneta Falk Hirschman who have joined us.

Poets and artists around the world unite through art, beauty and peace

A special thanks  also to Lidia Chiarelli and Huguette Bertrand

Yes, it’s that time of year again …

The summer has arrived,  sun is shining,  garden is blooming,  birds and bees buzzing around!  Barbeques and garden furniture get a facelift  in preparation for  garden parties with friends and family.

Oh, the joy of long summer evenings!

To make you feel even better, the People’s Art Dublin is on this weekend and so I have been busy painting, varnishing and framing my paintings in readiness for the busy season ahead.  This weekend marks the first of the outdoor exhibitions in St. Stephens Green, Dublin City Centre where there will be hundreds of original paintings for sale and great value to be had.

Come along and meet the artists this weekend in Dublin.
