Portrait

I had just to make my last hair stroke on my new portrait painting to count the work as officially finished.  As imagined by friends and family alike, my portrait painting is not a self portrait, but a personal study of someone else’s life.  It’s a painting I’ve named:  ephemerality.  This word can describe every stage of the work, as with each brush stroke the image was transformed to a new “being,” or a more recognizable being.

The work itself is my own interpretation of the moment I was lucky to caught on my sitter.  The white background for me, represents her innocence and the purity of the image.  The white egg hanging from her ear lobe represents her fertility.  There is a ticking clock behind, in the background.  Unlike any other kid, this one is serious.  She’s aware, like myself, that time has tremendous powers and I, as an artist, am just an observant of ephemeral moments. Image

I’m giving away an original painting!

“Piazza” is a painting I entered for the competition Pittori in Piazza, back in July of this year. I am giving it away to the person who becomes a fan in my facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=581398005234811&set=a.354880761219871.76338.146951642012785&type=1&theater) and then invites the most fans into this site (presses likes and tells me he/she is your friend).  It’s that easy!

There are a few good runners and the competition is heated! So far, a lady from Ascona is winning the race! I give it away at end of this month.  You have about 2 weeks to catch up so I hope you join in!
