Using a limited palette simplifes the process.
Small is Great is an upcoming exhibit
at the New Century Artists Gallery in NYC
opening on Dec. 14 from 3-6 pm.
Start with a limited palette. I am experimenting with Hans Yellow, Pyrrole Red,
Ultramarine Blue, Manganese Blue and Paynes Gray (in the Golden Open Acyrlics).
Usually I love pastel so much better because the colors are so vibrant however,
I am working with different yellows, blues and reds to create the vibrancy I love.
My work is all about Feeling the Energy so I work to gain that uplift through color.
Check the upcoming exhibits page for more details….

This is a view from a hilltop overlooking the Duomo in Spoletto.
This city is still similar in appearance to what it was in the 18th and 19th Century. There is a harmonious relationship
between the people, nature and the city. There are different styles in this Umbrian City that blend together beautifully.
Each year this is the place of a huge art festival. As in the past, artists gather from all over to show off their masterpieces.
I would love to spend a week or two here as it doesn’t seem as touristy as Assisi is. Well, that being said, until the festival begins.
Check out the festival here.
We will be traveling back to Italy summer 2015 so save the dates in the beginning of July to join us. Exact dates coming soon.
This next year besides art, cooking lessons are included!

It is quite challenging to work with fog moving constantly, the sun peeking through now and again and the rain putting a damper on it all yet we make the best of it. The studies we created in between the rain drops came out wonderfully. More images coming to show you the results.
Painting the fog (if it is not too thick) helps you to see the value differences in the landscape much easier. It rained off and on so we stood under the porch.

Yes, even the post office has a masterpiece mural upon entry.
Yesterday we visited the Duomo in Assisi and Spoleto.
Check it out.

The Pantheon in Rome is filled with the energy of visitors from all over the world. What
makes this destination so special???
Look up and you’ll see a 26 foot hole in the ceiling. Check it out here:

Upon arriving at the villa we had a beautiful lunch, course after course.
We then had a painting lesson and the participants sketched around the property. Then we prepared for another
meal- our welcome dinner around the fire.
Day two: Participants took photos or worked on studies to better understand value. They are working to see the patterns of Light, Medium and Dark.
Our villa’s host is working in pastel. The photo just doesn’t do justice to the landscape we are painting.
This morning we woke up to FOG so we are instead having a lesson on making Tiramisu.

We arrived in Roma and were so tired. It began to pour but we didn’t mind because it was warm out and had proper clothing. We walked to the Pantheon and decided to have lunch first. We found the absolute worst pizza in the plaza next to the Pantheon. I ate the cheese off the top. Dinner last night was excellent! Today we went to the Spanish Steps (almost). Got sidetracked by beautiful shops. Saw the Sistene Chapel yesterday. Now off to Umbria. Photos will follow.
The Pantheon is my favorite building in the world.
The 26 foot circular opening in the center of the roof
permitted the rain to enter. Check out the history here.

Isn’t it time to treat yourself to 8 days of fun, adventure and inspiration? Painter Linda Richichi will lead you. Capture the landscape in photographs or raise your painting skill while staying in a luxury villa in the Umbrian countryside, just 8 km from Todi. You may opt to join the group a day early and stay over a night after as well to experience Rome and more.
The workshop is open to both advanced and beginning painters and their friends or partners. You can focus on painting, on photography (with your camera or your smartphone!) or on both.
We will take our time, slow down and savor life.
Add more depth, more joy to your work. Join us for a wonderful week in Italy.
