The Grappa Maker

Here's a small study of a famous grappa maker I know. I'm working on something similar but on a much larger scale for the Kingston Prize.

Tripeiro

In a few weeks we leave for our annual trip to Valencia, Spain. This year it'll be for five weeks and if all goes well it will include a few days in Malta and a few fast painting contests.  I'm looking forward to reconnecting with friends and family, too.

In preparation, I painted this piece from a photograph I took last spring.  It could be anywhere in the Old World but is actually Porto, Portugal.  The "tripe" in the title refers to the nickname given to portuenses by other Portuguese, the tripe eaters. 


 Mmm, I had the tripe soup when we were there it was yummy.
