Autumn in the Plaza

"Autumn In The Plaza"
Jack Providenti
5" x 7"
oil on gallery wrapped canvas

This is a commissioned piece...The Plaza in downtown Santa Fe during the early days of fall. It was a quiet afternoon, just cool enough to feel like Autumn. The greens, pinks & near-orange colors inspired me to paint it.

Old World Fishing by Jack Providenti

"Old World Fishing"
Jack Providenti
16 x 20 inches
oil on canvas

The story behind this painting: It is a copy of a very old painting that I bought at a flea market many years ago. I had it appraised, and the most they could determine is that it was most likely a scene from Sicily. The original was accidentally destroyed ( that's another story) and I was feeling a huge loss, so I painted my own version of it!
