scott belcastro



i came across the work of scott belcastro and really love what he's painting. there's a gentleness about it that has a healthy taste of otherness about it.

expectancy.

what's about to happen?

superfine detail and a really strong sense of light make for some really incredible work that you can get easily immersed in.


scott maintains a blog that is filled with his work as well as his thinking and photographs that you can see are fuel for creative percolation!

Hi Steven

I have been to his blog and looked back through his interesting work. I like the thunderstorm best. The beautiful fine detail is so delicate and fragile against the coming storm.

Happy days

hi willow, i know the work of lane smith - i use some of the books he has illustrated when i teach!!! my fave would be "the stinky cheese man"! the photo of him working is amazing . . .you're so right!!! i have enjoyed this day - a 50 km bike ride through the countryside north of peterborough - a lovely omelette for lunch - herbs and cheddar cheese - and then an afternoon reading katherine mansfield's short stories under the clouds and sometimes sun! wow! that's what i call rich fortune. have a lovely evening. steven

Now that is what I call a perfect day! And Mansfield for dessert!

I have a copy of "The Very Persistent Gappers of Frip", illustrated by Lane Smith. It is just fabulous; a treasure.
