Looks Like My Paintings Have Gone COFFEE PUBLIC!

Get it??

Well you don’t have to get it, CAUSE THEY’RE THERE! At Coffee Public down at ol’ College and Bay in dirty ol’ Toronto! Ain’t that nice? I think it’s nice…

My paintings have come down back at Starving Artist, but these DIFFERENT paintings from Italy are now up fer yer viewing pleasure! And coffee pleasure! Go on, go and have a coffee! I dare ya. And get a muffin, too. Or even a cookie. Cause CHANCES ARE I made those, too!

But let’s get back to the paintings! Rather than my landscapey plein-air bros, these are specifically of the statues in Florence. From my faaaaavourite place in Florence! Yes, even more so than the Museo La Specola, and yes, I know that sounds outrageous, but hear me out. Wait, where was I? Oh yeah, they’re from the Loggia Dei Lanzi in Piazza Della Signoria. But I’ve talked about this place befooooorrre. Just scroll on back through the blog a little bit! So anyhow, I thought they’d look real good on the concrete pillars at Coffee Public!

Pillars

Oh this painting, THIS PAINTING, is the SECOND LAST one that I did in Italy! Just the night before I left! Powerful fuggin stuff, bros.

Some fun facts about these paintings… They were all painted in the middle of the night in a goddam gigantic and empty plaza in the heart of the friggin city of Florence! Ohhhh man, was it beautiful. Get up and coffee-up in the morning, wander and paint all afternoon (possibly in a museum), come home and make dinner, cool the frig off, take er easy fer a bit, get the ol’ travel setup ready to go and roll outta the house around 11… Set up in the piazza around midnight juuuuust when the place empties out of tourists and then, bros… BROS. Beautiful night of painting aheada ya. Definitely helps that half of the goddam sum of Western art is like 25 feet away within the walls of the Uffizi. *Sigh* It was g r e a t .
