SUNRISE AT MISSION BAY II, SAN DIEGO, acrylic on canvas
This painting is recent, and part of my new series of San Diego scenes, acrylic on canvas.
This "painting San Diego" I'm doing lately, reminds me of Gianfranco Baruchello, an Italian artist whose work was exhibited at the Biennale di Venezia this year. He is 89 years old, was a friend of Marcel Duchamp and Italo Calvino. These friendships introduced him to the notion that art is a form of faith in the ability to transmute everyday objects and activities into something greater.
