Tango at Trieste


This is a piece I did recently for my show at Caffe Trieste in downtown San Jose. Not specifically a tango painting, but it has that feel. I've been experimenting with a few new techniques also. Lately I've been really into Bossa Nova and all manner of jazz from Brazil, which is what sort of inspired this. Check out this great blog (Loronix) for tons of great records and info!

Anyway, it's been quite the "tango" dancing through all the projects I'm currently working on. See the previous post for more on that. But to see this painting in person, and much more, visit Caffe Trieste at 315 S. First Street in San Jose from 7/24 - 8/30. There is a reception the First Friday of August, the 7th, from 7pm-whenever. It'd be great to see you if you can make it (and are in the bay area, of course)!

I think it works for Tango. It does have that flavor. And looks great. I like the sets of threes and diagonals

Lovely. I really like the style and the pastel textures and shading work wonderfully!
