To our dear family and friends,

This year 2019, God had blessed us and gave us many reasons to be thankful.

The family is doing well, growing and healthy. Summer and Autumn are living permanently with Thommy and April, going to a new school here in Franklinton that they like. James surprised us with a welcome visit. Patricia and David came to visit us for the Allen reunion.

It has been a very sad year for Chile after the continues destruction by communist terrorist. We thank to God that the family is fine. My mother is stable and with a very positive spirit. Enjoying our company when we are able to go to Chile.

We took the granddaughters Summer, Autumn and Melissa to historical sites of North Carolina to learn about the history of our state and about their ancestors. Visited their graves and plantations.

I have to be thankful to my students, they had brought me great happiness seeing their accomplishments and paintings.

The painting in the top is the “Children Sleigh Ride” inspired by my husband Thom’s three children Thommy, Patricia and James, playing in the snow when they were small. Joyful days of growing up in their beautiful farm in Franklinton, North Carolina.

God bless you on this Holiday Season of 2019 and bring you lots of happiness for 2020,

Thom and Clina

Girl Making Butter Painting.

Oil painting 24″x 36″ by Clina Polloni.

Girl Making Butter Painting

Girl Making Butter Painting

This painting is about a girl concentrating in making butter. Children have always been my inspiration, portraying the innocence of their young life.

Also, my admiration for the beauty and history of North Carolina. Traveling through the mountains I admired the rocks formations and colors, from browns to yellows, greens, aquamarines and blues.

Clina Polloni is a contemporary artist born in Chile. Her oil paintings are inspired by her love for people, animals and nature. Her new project: “The motif of the human figure in a dialogue with natures light and colors.” In these new paintings she is portraying the people of North Carolina in their environment and activities, representing the colonial times and history of our state.

Instructions of how to do this painting:

  1. Start by drawing the girl and rocks setting defining the light and the shade. I draw with pencils, permanent pens and acrylics. Look at image.
  2. Do your under-paint or imprimatura with a wash of acrylic gold and silver. Acrylics are very good for under-painting because they dry faster. They create a worm color that once you put the oils in the top, they look brighter.
  3. Apply a coat of heavy gesso in the walls to create texture.

Girl Making Butter Drawing

Start painting with oils in the following order because it is going to be easier for you:

  1. Using oils, start painting the background, stones, window, chair, floor, vegetables, etc.
  2. Using oils paint the skin, blending light and shade to the color of the skin. Paint the features of the face and hands.
  3. Paint hair, hat and clothe.
  4. Sign your work of art.

A Painting Inspired by a Poem.

Memories of a White House Landscape

Memories of a White House Landscape

This landscape was created for the painting classes. I wrote a poem about this old couple living in the middle of the city, surrounded by buildings. My office was in one of these buildings where I could see from my window the old couple. Spring of 1999. Raleigh NC.

Instructions:

  1. Start by drawing the house and landscape with a pencil.
  2. Paint the under-paint with a mixture of Titanium White and Cerulean Blue. More blue in the sky, white in the house and both in the landscape. The best media to do your under-paint is acrylics because they dry faster. The under paint is very important because you are defining your drawing with colors and defining light and shade in your final painting.
  3. Paint the sky and clouds first. House next and landscape last.
  4. Enjoy finishing your painting. You can use acrylics or oils.
  5. Sign your work of art

Poem:

“Memories of a White House”

White was the house
green were the trees
memories of a long life left behind
the noise of activity, every day rush was gone…
long ago.

The only thing left was the old couple
in the silence of age,
embraced on a clear spring morning
by the friendly music of their birds
and the bright colors of fresh flowers.
