mystery art at the etna

Posted on 04.22.10 7:50AM under Uncategorized

Etna is an Italian restaurant on Nakano Dori very close to our apartment. Great food, good wine, funny master. He was given this painting by one of his customers when he had to move to a smaller apartment — tough economical times. When he was flush, he bought two of these for $100,000 USD. This is one of the pieces, reflected in a mirror. Couldn’t read the name of the artist, but he is a friend of Christian Riese Lassen, the kitschy surfer/marine artist. Ah, the good old days when this kind of art could be had for a small fortune. Now they have to give it away…

Anyway, what is the subject matter of this oil painting?
