Hi, I’m Paola Bassan and I’m a Country Painter.

Follow me and you will discover the wonder of Country Painting with me!

“If you have built castles in the air, your work must not be lost. That’s where they need to be.
Now your task is to build the foundations for those castles “
– Henry David Thoreau –

I’ll tell you something about me …

The love for Country Painting was like a bolt from the blue.

It was 2007 and I am not exaggerating when I tell you that … I have not stopped painting since then!

In all these years I have been lucky enough to meet wonderful people and extraordinary teachers:Maxine Thomas, Jamie Mills Price, Kim Houge, Laurie Speltz, Karen Wisner, Alessio Meggiato.

All of them have taught me a lot and have always encouraged me to do more, encouraging me to find my way, “my style”, if you can say so …

And here I am to live and share with you this great adventure … a dream come true!

Who has the imagination … how easily create a world out of nothing…”

Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer

Country Painting About Me page Paola Bassan Design


An idea meets a pencil …
… a pinch of technology … and for everything else there is imagination!

Country Painting, paint and look beyond

A phrase that Kim Houge said during a seminar was particularly impressive to me: “Look out of the box” that is, “look beyond”.

Looking beyond the box, beyond ordinary things, beyond the usual everyday life… and so I have been trying to do from that moment on!
When I draw, when I paint, I immerse myself in a reality that goes far beyond my “box”.

Each of my characters is a piece of me but much more than me.
I like to draw “topose” or “fluffy” stories (and also come up with weird adjectives and amazing names with which to call the things I create).
I draw what makes me smile … and even more I love to create an idea with color and many shades !!!

Having the opportunity to share this great passion with you is a privilege for me
thanks again for being here with me !!

I am always in Work in Progress, which is why in addition to my “classic” Country Painting projects I have also combined a line dedicated to the little ones … because creativity has no limits and each of you can learn to do anything !!!

Now .. smile .. have a good time..

but, above all, remember:

Relax … you are at home!
