Something you do not experience everyday… when your paintings are put on display in the Eiffel Room of the Hôtel De Hermitage, Monte Carlo. The two paintings (oil on canvas, 4' x 3') have been attracting no end of appreciation from visitors and staff of this grand establishment, and are in fact numbers 1 and 2 of an ongoing collection of works to celebrate the grandeur and splendour of Monaco. A lavish and limited edition book will be published in 2019 to coincide with the exhibition of all of these paintings on completion.
Much gratitude to SBM for allowing me unprecedented access to the various buildings, casinos, opera house and palaces to assist in my research.
