I'm honoring Fashion Week here in New York City by posting a few of my favorite Veronese paintings and their fabulous clothes. During Renaissance times Venice was famous for its luxurious silks and velvets, featuring large floral patterns laced with silver and gold. Paolo Veronese (1528-1588) must have absolutely adored them because he painted them repeatedly. And in gorgeous, juicy colors. Mama mia che bello.
I'm a representational painter enchanted by the unique qualities of watercolor. Sometimes oils, gouache, colored pencils and other media call to me too. I started this blog to share my work and ideas about making art. Sometimes I toss other things into the mix. Such as painters I love, and art books and exhibits that inspire me. Your comments are welcome. I'd love to hear from you!
