Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks. Simonides

Alfred Cosmo Colella

“Painting is my passion!

I am especially drawn to the human face and figure; greatly influenced by Sargent, Manet, Sorolla and Velazquez. 
To capture the spirit and character of a person in a particular moment in time using the lush and sensual qualities of oil paint is a magical experience and a gift for which I am always thankful. When others experience joy from my work, that is my greatest reward.”
