This is one of the pieces of art at the SCI show in Vegas, that I LOVED!!!
The artist is Stefano Cecchini. I've featured some of his paintings in past year's shots from SCI.
According to http://www.grandbohemiangallery.com:
Stefano Cecchini was born in Rimini, Italy on May 5, 1957. After graduating from the University of Bologna with a degree in political science, Stefano Cecchini followed his natural inclination and his passion by choosing painting as his career.
In November 1984 Cecchini collaborated with director Federico Fellini to paint scenery for the film Fred and Ginger. His work on the film took him to Rome and then Milan. While in Milan, Italy, he began to teach art at the European Institute of Design.
Cecchini has also worked with the prestigious Immagini Agency in Rimini, Italy as an illustrator and has painted some of the most important public advertising campaigns to date.
Stefano made his debut in the United States in 2003 as a featured artist at the American Chapter of Safari Club International, where he has since donated for auction more than a half a dozen paintings and has appeared as the cover artist of Safari Magazine three times.
As an accomplished artist, Stefano Cecchini enjoys painting luxury cars, exotic portraits and large-scale images of wildlife from different continents. He thoughtfully studies his subjects in detail to portray, with his own passion, their great beauty. His technique of painting on wood and using oil and tempera creates a trompe l’oeil effect that is admired worldwide. The Grand Bohemian Gallery is proud to exclusively represent Stefano Cecchini and his works.
Have a "lazy cat" sort of day today my friends!
