Diego Voci; “Le Visage” 40x30cm #10802-109 Glass Paint

Glass paint is a very difficult medium that for several months challenged Diego. In 1973, when Diego was staying with collector Dr. Ogden Brown in Colorado, Diego was at his creative best. He cooked and painted with glass paint in front of Brown’s daughters Lynda and Marsha. Yes, Diego had to cook the glass paint. Here is one example called “Le Visage = The Face”, rich in color & full of expression, just like Diego himself, always challenging himself and pushing to paint outside the box.

A brief history of the Dr. Brown family:

Here also is the link to one of Diego’s best works rendered with glass paint: “Women and Blue Pottery”, It’s well worth a look. Go ahead and click: https://www.artifactcollectors.com/diego-voci-painting-of-the-week-5154118.html#51910

Full Length Green Dress and Maroon Jacket by DIEGO Tweaked 30 DEC 2014When not painting, an abundance of creation filled Diego’s life.  Whether it be cooking, #designing and #tailoring #clothes or charming people, it all supplemented Diego’s painting & drawing, capturing the miracles in human faces and other great works of art.

Helga goes back in time to reminisce when she wore this elegant “green” dress.  Diego had designed and sewn himself.  In Helga’s words,

“I have 1 photo of this green evening dress, it was one evening when Diego and me went to the Theater and Lakshmi took a picture of us, because she thought we looked so nice”.  (click on link for more information on Lakshmi, the nanny; http://www.artifactcollectors.com/diego-history-4330818/Page6.html#171)
