12x12cm oil on canvas
on the table cloth is written cheese in several languages. This is a Brebis and though I bought it for the Thanksgiving dinner we attended I ended up eating most of it and had to buy more. It was absolutely delicious, smelled heavenly and reminded me of Tuscany.
And this is the next big painting of NY that I am working on...
I like the graffiti or street art, as they call it here, on the walls of the buildings on the left. Street Art is big in Paris, so are graphic novels. The taggers climb high on the rooftops to spray their dropies, I wonder if they do it upside down. It's kind of like foxes shitting in the woods, they choose the highest rocks so that their scent will be more olfactible.

The GMAC at the Bastille is an exhausting event; five days of chatting with thousands of people.
We had a black out and celebrated our sales every evening with champagne.
Five galleries approached me, one for the third time. I met several other artists, several who have studios at the Fabrique des Artistes in Ivry, where I work.
Any artist that wants to show in France has to do this salon. I don't think I'll do it again, at least not for a couple of years, I'm totally burned out.
Check out GAB . He's amazing.
I also met, Giovanni Manzo from Naples. I love his oils, I saw them a few years ago and was happy to talk with him.
Here is MIROGI's awesome Sumo bronze that I fell in love with so took home.

Just a note to say that my heart goes out to all that have been touched by hurricane Sandy. There are lots of paintings that are being auctioned off on Daily Paint Works. One hundred percent of proceeds will be donated to the American Red Cross.
After the GMAC ends, next week I'll have a painting on auction for the
