It's Friday the 13th, but it is my lucky day--- Today I have acquired this fantastic Oleg Ulitskiy plein air painting. (It was painted last year in Astoria).
Oleg is one of my all-time favorite artists and I presume you can see why! (I asked him if I could paint with him one day and he said 'Mayyybee'! (Read that in a deep Russian voice). It would be so much fun to watch something like this emerge from nothing but a blank canvas and a bit of paint! (GEEEEZ).
(I'll be updating my 'collector' post with this in the near future).
