Lemons and art

When I remember Capri I remember lemon trees. Blue blue sky, azure sea and yellow, yellow lemons on the trees. I brought some lemons home from Capri. As they were gone I felt so sad not having any good photos of Capri lemon trees. I had  photos of Capri lemons, even of ceramic ones, but of no lemon trees.  Searching net for nice pictures of lemon trees I’ve found a picture as bright as those lemons from Capri. And I’ve discovered a great American artist,Charles Demuth. His art makes me happy, as those lemon trees from Capri did.

Lemons and art

When I remember Capri I remember lemon trees. Blue blue sky, azure sea and yellow, yellow lemons on the trees. I brought some lemons home from Capri. They’ve remained in my subconsciousness in a way, just till the moment I’ve found some similar at the local market back home. As I’ve brought them home I’ve painted them the same day, just to remind me forever of all the yellows and blues of Capri………..

How a garden can have a view ? What could it mean? Visiting Villa San Michelle, Axel Munthe’s refugium , I was looking for the magnificent view I’d read about in some travel guides. But the garden surprised me. I found many views.  View over Capri bay- fantastic. View at spring flowers- heavenly smelling. View over centuries of history- up to the Tiberius. View into work and live of Axel Munthe-inspiring. And the most surprising view ? View into my childhood-remembering reading San Michelle and dreaming about sphinx in a garden overlooking azure sea ……….
