thanksgiving day

how grateful i am to have found this lovely photo just now. i am deeply immersed in making a series of watercolors based on the fellini film 'la strada' so naturally my mind's eye is filled with images of his wife/muse/film star giulietta masina.

photo of Giulietta Masina in 'Nights of Cabiria' (1957, dir. Federico Fellini)

The subject of loneliness and the observation of the isolated person has always interested me. Even as a child, I couldn’t help but notice those who didn’t fit in for one reason or another—myself included. -fellini
