My husband, Iacopo, and I will be participating in the Poetry and the Art of Eating Exhibit at Gallery North in Setauket, NY that opens tomorrow, April 25th. I painted a still life that conjures up images of weekend mornings when one might have time to leisurely read the paper over a cup of coffee. The espresso cup has an image of Federico Fellini, the great Italian Director. I received the espresso set as a gift from the sponsors of a photography exhibit of Federico Fellini at a gallery in NYC a couple of months before he passed away. If you haven't seen the film, "8 1/2", you should. It's very poetic, touching and artistic.
