Amateur paintings / Pinturas de aficioinados / Peintures d’amateur

These Amateur paintings have been made on courses by ordinary people. Our winter is long and dark. All of the people do not want to look at their television all the time, but they want to learn things on many courses. So they go on some adult education collage once a week during autumn, winter and spring. When all the different types of courses finish, then there is an exhibition in April.

Estas pinturas aficioinados se han hecho en los cursos de la gente ordinario. Nuestro invierno es largo y oscuro. Todas las personas no quieren mirar fijamente la televisión todo el tiempo, pero ellos quieren aprender cosas en muchos cursos. Así ellos van en algunos Escuelas Populares para adultos una vez por semana durante el otoño, invierno y primavera. Cuando todos los diferentes tipos de cursos acaban, entonces hay una exposición en abril.

  1. What talented people! I love the second painting with the barns and sleigh, but also the trees in 28, 30 and 31. It’s good to see people using their skills. Did you or your wife paint any of these?

    • Hello Jackie.

      You cannot understand how relieved I am when reading Your comment. I was thinking which kind of attitude people have when seeing these. I checked Your choice and they are great. To me, although I am not specialist, the 42 is good in its own way. I like it due to that, because the Cat is not imitating the Sphinx, so simple, maybe it is some kind of naive painting.

      We are not artists, no paintings of us here, but we admire very much that kind of art, that we both understand directly in our mind, not that kind which must be explained to us by an specialist that we can understand what a painting is presenting.🙂

      BTW, The second photo is very typical view from our country side living pasting few decades. Red “house“ on the left is Sauna and the other red house is main house. Those two others are shed and barn.

      Thank You commenting.

  2. I really really love all the paintings, because It’a form of expression. I’m a painter too, not a professional one though. But it doesn’t matter, what’s important is painting! I publish some of my work on my blog.

    Hi from Italy🙂

    • Hello inelegancewetrust.

      Saluti a soleggiata Italia!

      Thank You commenting. As You said it is indeed a form of expression. All of us need to express us and show our skills. My wife is making beeds, quilting and patchwork. I like to see how she is making them. Me, well, I like to take photos and lately I have been shooting videos again. Earlier I was making films, but it was back more than 20 years. Video editing is also some kind expression and I find it very challenging.

      Your words are worth of gold, because You told that You a painter and so You can see these works with different eyes than me, maybe with keen interest, I suppose.

      • My interest is vivid, but I’m not a professional painter. I just paint for fun and to relax. I like the use of colour, I guess it is therapeutic for our soul.

        You said it so good – soul. In our mind / soul we feel and that’s important. Thank You.

  3. How exquisite each of these paintings are! I really like each one as each is expressive and unique. How fortunate your people are to be able to take courses during the dark months and celebrate in the spring to show their artistry. I’m impressed. We don’t have such here and it was be very good for many, especially in our rural communities to have such. I used to paint, not professional, and seeing these makes me hungry to pick up the brush and canvas again; though mainly, I’ve been learning how to paint digitally and do enjoy this a lot. Wonderful post and I enjoyed viewing all the paintings.🙂

  4. Hello Anna.

    Thank You for Your visit and comment. Once upon in my country women gathered in somebody’s home and they had “needwork meeting”. It continued for a long time, but the modern society wiped out this nice habit. I guess that our “adult education collage system” is a modern continuum to get people to do things together, enjoy life and to become acquainted with other people who share same ideas and hobbies, I am not sure, but so it might be. If I am comparing this with one of my wife’s hobby “beading”, then she continues in her way our old tradition, because she starts five time course / meeting again and it is hold on one enthusiast’s home. Is Anna there anything like this there, to gather together and to do things or hobbies together, some kind of “commerce”?

    I see that now I meandered, which is my vice, because the main topics is art / painting.

    Anna, I am glad if this gave to You desire to pick up the brush and canvas again, as You wrote.

    Regards.

  5. I love these paintings………..you have made a good selection …they all are so “real” and tell me about little aspects of life in your country………they are so sweet and happy and full of adventure

    • Hi Sean.

      So good to read that You liked my selection of paintings. I tried to find the variety of life here, modern time, past, impact of travel, different seasons etc.

  6. What a wonderful collection! They are an incredibly variety, with a lot of talent there. I enjoy the different perspectives and respect the folks who painted them!

    • Hello Montucky.

      As You saw there are lot of paintings from nature, from summer and winter. I might guess that these give some kind of idea about people likes here, because they are painting those themes which are dear to them.

  7. Those are beautiful and very uplifting. When I was going to college, a there would be annual art displays of student artwork, and so often a lot of it would be very depressing–in contrast these are show happiness and beauty. So hard to pick a favorite.

    • Hi Kateri.

      I was reading Your comment few times and I found this: “these are show happiness and beauty”. Thank You saying so, because my people has been dissed to be boring and whatsoever. I understand it, because long winter is murky nearly without sun light. In the Southern part sun is shining on winter time only about four hours and in the Northern part there is no sun during few months, only night. During summer time it is of course contrariwise. In the South, were I am living, night lasts about three hours and in the North, no nights. If people, who are living in these kind of conditions, then those things You mentioned, it is marvelous if we find happiness and beauty. Maybe it is so that we long for them in our mind and some want to present them through their paintings. Anyway, I am relieved, if we are not so dull. Thank You for Your analysis!

  8. I liked the one with the young man painted in black and white the best. My second best was the woman driving the old automobile in the snow. Great photos.

    • Hi Preston.

      So nice to hear Your comment. I like also that lady driving her car in snowy winter and she tries to keep her car on the road not to drive to crust of snow.

  9. Good morning, Matti,
    all images are beautiful in their own way. The colors all harmonize very well together. It is admirable that these pictures were painted by amateur artists.
    The images, from top to bottom, 1/2/9/10/15/16/17/21/28/30/37/45 liked me best. My husband and I are amateur painters. We paint from time to time, even pictures with oil or acrylic paints. Painting a picture is combined with patience and sensitivity.
    I am grateful that I was allowed to view this page. Please check your e-mail. I wish you and Anja all the best on your daily routes.
    Dear greetings Christel

  13. Hi Matty,
    I enjoyed your post a lot and really , as far as I’m concerned ,all the pictures are beautiful!

    The difference between this exhibition and the one I showed you in my post , is that the San Fermo’s painters claim they are all professional and not “amateur” …!

    In fact some of them teach in academies ,some others have their own Galleries and all of them come from different schools….

    Thank you once more for your interesting posts , I had missed this , of course!

      I am happy for Your comment. Thank You. There was one detail among my Icon-post. Did You notice that in the photo 26 there is “Madre di Maria”. You know of course her name.🙂 I hope that You love this special Icon.

      Have a wonderful day!
