At the Opera
original monotype, 16x20" matted and

I was fortuante enough to attend the
premier performance of Michaelangelo,
an opera by Enrico Garzilli, which took
place at the performing arts center in
Providence, Rhode Island. My seat gave
me a dramatic vantage point to observe
both the singers and the audience. I did
a quick pen and ink sketch at the time,
pictured above (click to enlarge), and
using it as my reference, later made this
colored monotype. The opera was
wonderful, a triumph for Mr. Garzilli,
author of both the libretto and the
music, and a native Rhode Islander.
