Okay Okay... not an art quilter but a most interesting artist. He paints many subjects particularly beautiful females but it is interesting that Aldo Luongo is a painter which even as a young man also began to paint himself as an old man, in this case enjoying a taste of port. His paintings normally contain vibrant colors with a great deal of movement in them.
I love that in the piece below, Luongo is seemingly leaning against a wall, taking a short break! This piece below is different. A few years ago I happened upon this fine art print charcoal sketch (essentially of himself ) titled "The Work Goes On!"
Decades back, when the Kennedy Center first opened in New York, a then young Luongo was the artist in residence and this image of an older Luongo was offered for sale at the opening.
I needn't be a slave to work. There will be time ! ...after I finish teaching/blogging! ;-D
