Mine. All mine!

VioletGreenPuzzle

I'm not generally one to brag about purchases that I make, HOWEVER.... take a look at this amazing painting that I scored at the show I did this past weekend! It is by an aritist named Paul Bozzo and his work is very cool. And by very cool I mean incredibly awesome.

I purchased my first Bozzo piece (he calls them textured paintings) last year at the Athens Arts Fest and one of the main reasons I was looking forward to going back this year was knowing that I would be able to get another one.

Be sure to check out his blog to see more of his work and learn about his unique technique.

I love his pieces, and also love that he always has it set up so people can try it! They make the greatest gifts too becuase really who wouldnt want to get one of these beautiful works of art!? :-) I particularly like this one with the puzzle pieces.

Looks like he doesn't sell online?? Is there a listing of his upcoming shows somewhere? Beautiful stuff!

As far as I know he only does the one show each year. I know someone who just emailed him to see if he would ship a painting to her in TX, so perhaps he can do that. I know a lot of people who would really love to have one of his paintings. Are you reading this Paul?? People want your work!:)

Very cool! I can see why you wanted to go back! Hope you had a good show!

If you are in the Mansfield, PA area he sells work out of the Night & Day Cafe and the Settlement House art shop. I think he has sold via mail, as well.

I have one of his paintings also -- Bitter Sweet Night Shade, with a piece of the plant pressed right in. Great artist!

Hi Nancy - Thanks for the great plug and publicity! I enjoyed seeing your meticulous craftsmenship and hearing about your quest for buttons! Of course I am drawn to your work because of the ways you make textures and how you color them.
I'll try to address some of your followers. First, thanks for all the kind comments. I do not have a site to do internet sales. I have and am still quite willing to sell work through emails. I have done many commissions, but because of the nature of my processes I can't guarantee exact duplication colors.
