tableau de Yannis
I call this painting tableau de Yannis. While I was in Nice 2010, I asked Yannis for his advice several times for the direction I should take with this painting.
I met with Yannis and Paulin again in September. It has been the first time to see them in five years. It was good to see the gallery again. It was time to go back, no regrets. They have shared with me a significant part of my life that will not be forgotten, and for their friendship, I am grateful.
There was always laughter between the three of us. We were the three artists. The best moments were spent filling my sketch book with characters and scenes while drinking vin chaude or beer in the afternoon. We spent hours in bars sitting at a table, telling our stories conveyed in small caricature drawings. There was once a day we spent a few too many hours at one of our favorite bars. Our laughter and behavior started to become a little too disruptive, and eventually we were asked to leave. There was much joy between the three of us.
