The pastel

... "He found America" ​​...

Taken as a side activity in the years watercolor, pastel is certainly worthy of note. As mentioned earlier, fell in love with a neighbor, and thus his life, after years of sad, found new flavor. Love, especially the passionate, turn on your senses, brings light. Lead, gives vivacity and new enthusiasm for the soul. In the artist, having regard to its outstanding sensitivity, this is so emphatic. Moods, lay down the law in these universes perceptible, then invariably projecting outside and offering new and powerful prerogatives to the product in place by the art itself.
Occurred so also for Woodns. When he started with oil pastels, dictated by the period, introduced an ocean of colors. With the advent of Graziella, not only revived, but as we used to say we Italians, "found I'America." She was a woman who loves the sun, and as he loved the outdoors. But mostly found in her what he had always wanted. A partner willing to follow him everywhere, even in a racetrack or racing in a room, but what counted most of all was his natural inclination to accompany him in his way of painting. They went to live together and they were always together. When they came out, he painted and she was enjoying the sun and the natural beauty around there. Views of lakes, mountains and seas. Free from any commitment both work and family, devoted a lot of the holiday. Among the favorite places of those recurring and leisure and to devote to painting, pride of place certainly belongs in Pietra Ligure, a small town overlooking the sea, which Woodns, over the years, portrayed in all its corners.
Among the favorite destinations for their outings should instead include Switzerland and its valleys, our lakes and our mountains. Choices that fell, most of the time, on water lovely, as Alserio the Segrino the superb lake. They were really nice for both years, no longer young on the documents, but innocent in and accomplices of a new spring. A good season, the reflection of which we can still observe the extreme vivacity of the works of that period, which Umberto, with his magic hand, has given us.
