Last year I decided to do some "support the arts" buying and picked up a handful of images from local, and not-so-local, photographers. Though 2018 was a purposeful effort it started a few years earlier when I bought this canvas work by my friend Peter Tellone (I'm still waiting for him to become famous).
Katherine and I were looking for a bold print to occupy a wall off the kitchen and visible from everywhere in the front of the house. She wanted red and nothing I had was either red enough or bold enough. Peter's work, entitled Pacific Beach Pier Sunset fit the bill perfectly. Big, bold colors, plenty of red, a nice yellow in the eye of the circular abstract. Its striking 36" square of red and yellow hangs in our nook and I see it each morning as I write and work on images. Follow this link to Peter's print store.
For the next few Fridays I will be doing a short write-up of a piece I've picked up in the hope it encourages some to support local artists and pass the word on what you're seeing out there.
