WHERE I’M CALLING FROM ©2012 Felice Panagrosso Mixed Media on Phone Book Page 10.5 x 6.5 inches

Doodling on a page from an obsolete Saint Germain-en-Laye phone book (I keep wanting to say Facebook). It’s obsolete for two reasons. First it was last year’s phone book. Second, who uses phone books nowadays anyway?

L’Heure Bleue (unfinished)©2016 PanagrossoOil on Canvas25 x 25 centimeters

I thought the Blue Hour only occurred in France, perhaps because it was here in Paris that I first appreciated it.  But in fact, the Blue Hour can occur anywhere on earth, either in the city or in the countryside.  In Spain it’s called […]

LA MADELEINE©2016 Felice PanagrossoOil on Panel24 x 16 centimeters

I never paint the Monuments.  There is something about a place, especially Paris, that I prefer to capture by painting the stones, the streets, the waterways, and the light.  I’ve painted many pictures of Paris, which you can see here, but this is one […]

Dear Friends and Family,

This is the Canal Saint Martin, in Paris.  About a 30 minute walk from my house.  It’s an even shorter walk from the Canal to the Bataclan Music Hall, where some of the horrible events of […]

Orange is the new... orange

HAUNTED GARAGE, Orange, Connecticut ©2015 Felice Panagrosso Oil on Panel 14 x 22 centimeters

There is no substitute for orange.  The color orange sits on the color wheel between the primaries red and yellow.  It’s a mixture of those two warm colors.  No other primary or secondary color is situated between two warm […]
