This painting represents for me a nice summer day, where reading and being in nature belongs to the natural development of the day.
Sunlight covers the hours and in the intensity of green plants even with movement everything seems to stand still in silence.
After my moving to Germany I was impressed by calmness and quantity of green around.
I tried to capture this atmosphere and to transform it into my painting.
As my husband is a writer, the theme of writing is an important element of my work and poetry inspired my works since ever.
Literature and reading have always been my travel companions.
And sometimes, as in this case, they become part of the painting itself.
