Good Morning All. Sorry This Is A Little Late...Had Some Trouble Uploading The Photos Of This Lovely Carlo Parisi Painting That I Found At The Goodwill Sunday. Status: Wanting For A Nicer Frame / Mat.
Yeah, I couldn't get these photos to upload last night at all. Flickr's newer uploader kept failing to "publish" so this morning I got the bright idea to try the "old" uploader and it worked just fine. Anywayz, I think this is an original painting but I'm not 100% sure.
I hope that everyone here is mature enough to not be offended by the nature of this painting. I got to
admit, I was a little embarrassed to buy it, not because of the nature of the subject so much as how
utterly cliche it was for ME to be buying it. Honestly, if it would have obviously been a print I would
have left it behind. But is it an original painting? Not sure.
The piece "feels" like a painting. It's got a certain thickness to it but I can't really make out the brush
strokes in the medium. Can a painting be reproduced in acrylic or oil on canvas in a print form? I'm
just not that educated on the subject.
I can't make out what that stamp says on the back. It's probably where the piece was purchased. It
looks like Carlo Parisi was more famous for his works depicting crying children, which I find a strange
subject to paint. But then it looks like he was copying another more well know artist who was doing
the same. Strange. I'm glad a found a more appealing piece!
