BEST IN SHOW
The Red Cane, oil painting by Alex Bellotti
“The Red Cane was inspired by an old Gentleman I knew some 20 years ago. I had taken a small a black and white photo of him, and forgot about it until I was going through some stuff while clearing out junk while quarantined, and I realized he needed to be painted. The painting took very little time, as he just came to life.”
