Il Maestro: An Ode to Massimo Giannoni

2012, Oil on canvas, 24"w x 36"h

After studying under the Italian painter Massimo Giannoni, I decided to paint
a portrait of the man. This is an ode to a great painter who taught me so much. The painting is subdued both in its color palette and composition which personifies Massimo’s somber personality. Although he is a somber man, he is also very steadfast and determined in his own art production. This is a painting
of a wise man and a great mentor.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in 2020 in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so for another year, through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
