|Oil Painting by A. Liviy|
Mesmerizing. That is how I'll describe it.
It is a mystery how this mid century depiction of the Paris World's Fair ended up in a small antique store in Martinez, California covered in cob webs. For those who have never set foot in Martinez, it is not known for its art collections. Or world travelers for that matter. But then again, folklore (aka. Wikipedia) suggests that the Martini drink was invented in this sleepy town so perhaps I am wrong.
It now hangs above our living room couch.
