January 11, 2011

Hello. I feel I want to make another post dedicated to Jeanne Risica who died this past New Year's Eve. It is my way of celebrating her, a brilliant painter. I happen to own at least one of her paintings I say one because I bought a few from a studio sale that she and my cousin Ron had years ago. I am pretty sure that I have some of their collaborations but not sure if I have any more of her solo pieces. The piece is stored in my studio in the city and I am not sure if it has been photographed I will try to locate an image of it. It is a beautiful image that she was close to, I think she told me it was from a dream she had or a childhood memory. It is a very dark almost black painting on a piece of random wood with a line dividing the horizontal plane and an outline drawing of a child on a bicycle, I think the child is upside down. A very moving piece. I may have to give it on loan to my cousin who is deeply in mourning for his friend.

So this is for Jeanne.

  1. Hello mark,

    First off, thank you for visiting my blog. I absolutely love your paintings below, they definitely convey a sense of emotion, a state of mind, a personal narrative.

    I am truly sorry for the loss of your friend.

    R.I.P Jeanne.

    I will be back for more updates.
