Inspiration comes from nature, people, children, life images. From over 1.000 + pictures taken during the course of holidays, strolls, running errands and always carrying the camera or telephone. No need for a very fancy camera. The interest is not on technically perfect pictures but on being able to catch a strong mixture of colors, surprising lines on the horizon, magical shapes forming and emerging from a landscape, or even just a souvenir of a tree, an idea of an image. Over 1.000 pictures awaiting to be translated to oil paintings or watercolors and the number of pictures is increasing: a new digital Pentax is always at hand.
Inspiration comes as well from the admiration professed towards great masters: Nicolas de Staël, Gerhard Richter, Emil Nolde, Maria Elena Vieira da Silva, Rothko, Edward Hopper, Georgia O'Keeffe, Matisse, Picasso, Sorolla to name just a few.
