Day 323 – Human beings are works of art

D

I always feel inspired when I walk the streets of Florence. Artists that live and create here inspire me the most. This morning was a source of incredible inspiration for me. After meeting three artists and talking to them about different projects we can work on together, I arrived home with a big, dumb smile on my face. Ever since The human behind the artist was born I have met incredible human...

Day 230 – 4 steps to stay focused on the old project

D

Whether a writer, a painter, a photographer or any other job that involves the process of creating, anyone knows how hard it is to stay focused on something you are about to finish. At the very beginning, when the idea for your project is born, your enthusiasm is up to the roof and you can’t wait to start working, to finish the process of organizing your thoughts, so that you can actually...

Day 210 – After weekend thoughts

D

This has been such an amazing weekend. I love it when I can combine work with fun and at the end of that day I can just sight and smile in the same time. Saturday started a little slow, teaching and trying to stay awake in between classes. It’s a good thing my main teaching method includes lots of fun and games, otherwise the classical way would make me yawn and fall asleep faster then the...

Day 208 – The myth of the starving artist

D

We all know it, we all think about it, but most of us are afraid to talk about it out loud. Are we or aren’t we starving artists? Is it just a myth or a reality? Is it that only starving artists are true artists? I don’t know if this is true all around the world, but in Florence,there are many types of artists. There are the ones who tell you they are starving, but honestly you can...

An interview about the romantic stroll of an artist in Florence with Sara Amrheim

A

I’ve met Sara about a year ago, when she hosted the first aperitivo of the Creative People in Florence at her studio. She struck me as an amazing, kind woman, with intense blue eyes, friendly to every one around her, trying to create a welcoming environment for other artists to interact with each other. I remember admiring the jewelry made of paintings, as I called them, thinking I have...

Day 187 – Other people’s stories

D

Having a day off and nothing to do but house chores and playing with Ephia, my brain started working on its own as usual, looking for ideas, while washing the dishes, while cooking, while eating… it’s a good thing that my mind doesn’t wonder off when I am speaking to my daughter; imagine the mess that could be created. Anyway, usually when this free time comes along, I...

Day 161 – Strolling through the streets of Florence

D

This weekend Open Studio Weekend happened in Florence, organized by Lost in Florence. The event was very popular and some studios opened there doors specially for it. Because I had an exhausting Saturday, I only stopped by at some doors, just to say “Hi!” and to catch up with some of my favorite artists. My first one was Sara, and as usual her place is very alive and colorful...

Day 148 – Good exhaustion and The human behind the artist

D

When you start building projects and giving life to your ideas you become more tired while planning everything than when you actually make it happen. I think this applies to all people whether they are artists or not. Personal projects are the trickiest, because they are comfort food for your soul, they always start small and easy, then after a while you find yourself in the midst of everything...

Day 138 – Creative night

D

Did I tell you people how amazing this group I am part of, Creative People in Florence, is? Last night, Anna and Sara organized yet another magnificent aperitivo event, to welcome all our new members in the group and to reunite with some of the regulars. As in any creative crowd the people were beautiful, the food was great and the discussions filled with just enough spices to intrigue. We...

Day 128 – Jokes about artists and writers

D

I was planning on writing something entirely different today but a friend of mine sent me these jokes and I couldn’t help myself not to share. As we all know, humans can make fun of themselves easily and thus jokes have been invented. Every flaw or specific characteristic of someone can be exploit it and transformed into laughing material. So, after all those years laughing of dentists...
