Painting in Verona

I see this artist every day when I cross the bridge.

I have seen his progress every day. He is a serious painter. He concentrates and turns his head to see the landscape. He is "in the moment" you can tell.

He paints with heavy clothes and a piece that covers his mouth and nose. Is it for the pollution or the cold.

He wears covers on his shoes- for the paint drips? or the cold as he is out all day, 6 hours at least.

He wears gloves and I wonder how he can paint with those on his hands.

People stop and watch him work. They sometimes have a chat together.

I return to Canada this Friday. I think he will be finished by then.

What a nice evolution I witnessed for the past week.
