Thursday!


Maestro from the Italian maestro, means "teacher" and is a title of extreme respect given to a master musician.

Wow.

The black and white clothing is especially striking. Limited palette?

Funny to find out that this is a maestro...! Why? Because before I read, I thought it was an opera singer, though I wasn't sure which one (I am not an opera fan). So, my point is that I at least got the right venue: music! You've given this the respect he is due, Celeste, and he exudes the seriousness in which he takes his career. Masterful!

That's wonderful! You really captured his essence and personality!

Maestro in Italy: is for kindergarden and elementary school, for musician and singer (is more than professor) and for artist, for a carpenter... for all those doing with ability, experience and respect... your portrait is about a maestro and it is done with "maestria" (is the ability of a maestro).
Ciao Graziano

Great choice of background here, beautiful painting. I think he just heard a wrong note and is eyeing the offender.

Celeste, you never cease to amaze. You pass so effortlessly from one genre to another so well.
