Something very cool happened back in December when my paintings were in Florence for the “Symphony of Color” exhibition.

First, the VF Agenda section of Vanity Fair magazine, the Italian issue, listed the “Symphony of Colour” exhibition in Florence as one of the top things to do in Italy during September. The organizers of “Symphony of Color” were not aware VF Agenda was listing the exhibition until the mention appeared in the Vanity Fair issue.

Then, the other very cool something that happened is VF Agenda used an image of my painting “Red Trunks” to illustrate their mention of “Symphony of Color”. At the time, this Calgary Artist was in Paris, France, attending the Salon 2011 for the Societe Nationale des Beaux-arts at the Carrosel du Louvre when I learned VF Agenda had used “Red Trunks”. The message I received was through a through a Facebook message that shared the image from the magazine. This is the same image you see with this post so the quality could be better but currently it is the only copy I have.

Arguably, “Red Trunks” was one of the most recognized paintings in Italy last December.
