Casa de Campo en Chile

Casa de Campo, Chile in the 1800’s.

This painting was inspired by my life in Rabones, a valley of dreams located in the mountains of the central region of Chile. I lived for 10 years in our farm called “Las Puertas de Rabones”. I was close to God, to people, nature and to animals. Memories of golden sunny days, enjoying the company of beautiful people with spirits as clear as the crystal waters of “Rio Putagan” running through the fertile land. I learned about their culture, their traditions and the purity of their lives.

The Market Girl Painting

The Market Girl Painting

“The Market Girl”: In the Hispanic culture it is a tradition to go to the market, where the local people bring their fresh fruits, vegetables and craft. This girl is proud to show her flowers and vegetables with her colorful hand netted ponchos in the back.

I did this painting when I went to Ecuador. Inspired by their colorful art and culture, very similar to most of the countries in South America.

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 people in their environment and activities, representing the American and Hispanic Culture.

Casa de Paja

Casa de Paja

A straw farm house painting in Chile by Clina Polloni.

Casa de Paja en Chile

Casa de Paja en Chile

In the early years of Chile, even in the 1800’s, farmers planted their wheat in the fields. This was one of their most important sources of food. They baked their bread in an open fire, prepared mote con huesillos and other culinary dishes. And when the harvest was all over, they built their thatched houses with straw.

I did this painting from a sketch that my great grandfather, Antonio Polloni did when traveling and painting the country side of Chile in the 1800’s.

Oil on Canvas – 36”x 30”

I did this painting when I went to Ecuador. Inspired by their colorful art and culture, very similar to most of the countries in South America. People live in the cosmopolitan cities surrounded by malls and a variety of today’s modern stores. But the beautiful thing is that they preserve their culture in the market.

1800s Vineyards House

Learn how to paint a farm house in the vineyards land of Chile.

Painting Class Taught by Clina Polloni.

1800s Vineyards House PaintingI was born and raised in Chile, and in my memories, I remember country roads, traveling with my family through the beautiful vineyards land in the foot hills of the Chilean mountains.

This painting is inspired by a Chilean song:

“Si vas para Chile”

Te ruego que pases por donde vive mi amada
Es una casita muy linda y chiquita
Que esta en las faldas de un cerro enclavada

La adornan las palmas y cruza un estero
Al frente hay un sauce que llora, que llora
Porque yo la quiero
Si vas para Chile te ruego viajero
Le digas a ella que de amor me muero

El pueblito se llama Las Condes
Y esta junto a los cerros y al cielo
Y si miras de lo alto hacia el valle lo veras que lo baña un estero
Campesinos y gentes del pueblo te saldrán al encuentro viajero
Y veras como quieren en chile al amigo cuando es forastero

Esta pintura esta inspirada por esta canción Chilena.
