Mariano,
Your still life paintings are wonderful. I love the realistic quality you achieved with the baseball. Are you doing under painting then glazes? Well done, whatever approach you are using.

Ciao Mario,
Tu mi vizii coi complimenti, ma meglio cosi' che un pugno in un'occhio! Tante grazie e buona settimana.

Ciao Laura,
si' hai ragione, ma siccome io non mi intendo di Baseball , ho letto quello che era scritto sulla palla per darle il titolo. Ti ringrazio tanto dei complimenti, sono contento che abbia soddisfatto il tuo gusto. Buona settimana....e grazie mille! Come si dice in Liguria.

Hi Joan,
Thank you very much glad you like my still life, the merit for it goes to Daniel Edmonson,Hall Groat II,Alex Perez and 3 or 4 dead teacher that left me their books.No underpainting , no glazes, not even an imprimatura. Direct painting one piece at a time a la Daniel Edmonson for my latest still lifes.

Hi Celeste,

Anyhow on this oil I put togehter Hall Groat II classic baseball with Daniel Edmonson way of laying colors to create may own look. Painting a sphere is fascinating, Hypnoting. Keep worm
