For sure Times Square is a bucket location. It’s worth seeing it once, even if you aren’t a city person. When I was there some guy rode by on his bicycle and complained about the tourists. I thought that was funny.
Here is what this gorgeous painting would look like on your wall, if you live in Paris :)) . The mannequin on the left is for sale, it’s called Place Colette. The other one moved to a luxurious apartment on the other side of Paris.
Another painting that was selected for a curated collection is Le Bistro du Peintre. Probably the largest cafe scene that I’ve made to date. It looks great on this red wall. It’s in the collection À Table.
It pleases me to be featured in this collection because my paintings have been about food for years. In Italy I painted food in the style of the Romans. It was called Xenia when they decorated the walls of villas with still life’s of fruit. They did this as an offering. Anyone who came was offered fruit. LOL, you couldn’t eat it but you were offered. I like that.
The last few months in my atelier were dedicated to painting the Parisian Cafe. All of the cafes and restaurants in all of France were closed for months. No one was sitting at a cafe. It was surreal. These paintings celebrate. The iconic Parisian cafe life. To purchase > go to my Singulart page.
Today in my studio awaits this classic car commissioned by Bruno D. He wanted a classical background. I chose piazza Santissima Annunziata in my home town Florence, Italy.
Thank you Bruno for ordering this. I am grateful because in 34 years of painting, the oil paint on my palette has never dried up.
The last 12 months were thin and ego crushing, my palette was not my friend. The gobs of paint on my palette weeped and shriveled up but held a core of balmy pigment inside. Waiting for my palette knife to crack them open and unveil their mystery.
I’ve come to love those ego crushing moments because the freedom they bring is like water from a mountain spring.
Corona virus was my companion for 8 weeks. He taught many great lessons. Mostly how to be still. Joining an intensive online Zheng Qi Gong class was surely the best non-move I made in my life. This is what I painted.

These are both underpaintings that I was never going to finish. But with extreme joy I sewed them into this little clutch. This WILL make a cute Christmas present. Especially if you have a Testarossa. But if you don’t you can wake up and dream on when you apply the lipgloss you pull out of this gorgeous one of a kind, future vintage Brooksby Clutch.
And you could win the auction for ninety-nine cents.
As far as the blue nude goes. I don’t have time to tell you about it now. But it was going to be more than a painting.
