Better Living

Two of my paintings, The Dome Behind the Trees (pic) and Tal-Mirakli, will be used as a backdrop and featured on the popular Maltese program Better Living. The program, which is aired on One TV every Friday at 5:45pm brings the viewer close to some interesting topics, such as interiors, like drapes, stone decor, stained glass and other topics like beauty and health.

The paintings will feature in two separate programs. The Dome Behind the Trees will be aired on Friday 27th November 2009. The painting  shows the dome of the Vatican from the Vatican's Gardens. It is based on a number of sketches I did of the Vatican building during a private visit in the gardens back in 2008. The second painting will feature the following week. Tal-Mirakli is a painting that portrays tal-Mirakli Church in Attard.

The program is presented by Paulanne Vella and produced by Rennie Vella

That time of year is again with us. Yes, that time of year where we celebrate with our families, friends and loved ones our core modern value - consumerism! To help you celebrate more, may I remind those of you who don't have a clue what to buy their boss,  lover, mother  or long forgotten uncle (whom you once might inherit), that most of my works are also available in limited-run prints.

Prints come in three different sizes, 12", 17" & 24" for most paintings and 12" & 17" for most ink drawing sketches. For more information please visit In the artworks section, underneath each painting there is an information box with the description of what prints are available. All prints are signed and numbered.
