Exciting news! My painting “Mondrianesce Studio” was just purchased by the Europe Hotel LLC. It will be going to the Belmond Grand Hotel Europe in Saint Petersburg, Russia and it will be hanging in the Presidential Suite. Nancy Sweeney, owner of Art Advisory Service and great friend and supporter, helped to convince them that my painting was a good example of Russian Constructivism and would fit perfectly into their hotel. Thanks Nancy! So let’s all raise our glasses of vodka and toast to my good fortune…Твоё здоровье! – [tva-jó zda-ró-vye] – Your health!
My abstract painting class continues. For this assignment, we were to paint an abstracted version of our studio space. Here’s my reference photo and my abstracted version of it. I painted it in oils for a change and I love the opacity the paint (a nice change from acrylics). It has a crisp feel and a “Mondrain-esque” character.
