All the marrow of life – out of primary colors

Using only primary colors to paint is what I have always done.

I am aware that many brands have really beautiful and vibrant shades of every color, nevertheless  I’d rather mix them personally. Painting is like magic and I prefer not to have anything “ready for use”. What I love to do is mixing all the ingredients, taking the risk to mistake, and sit back and see what’s gonna happen on my canvas or wood!

I think I got if from my father, who raised me in his bakery, where the sweetest magic used to happen . And from the roughest ingredients and the worst mistakes came out the best recipes.

Certainty, sometimes, can be a cage! The unexpected, on the contrary, allows us “to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life” (Thoureau)
