leaning tower of Pisa
I always knew that eventually i would paint the leaning tower of Pisa !!!!!!! . I have painted the Eiffel tower many many times so in a sense it was Italy's turn . Such a marvelous structure to behold and its certainly is Italy's most defining Icon architecturally . So yes i have painted it finally , and i can tell you its by far the most complicated tower i have ever painted . So much detail . I am very sure its new owner who is Italian will love it . !!!!!!! I am truly fascinated by this remarkable culture and cant wait one day to do an entire exhibition on this country . I think sadly that will be a few years down the track . One day Tuscany will call its always been a given that i will paint in that location for a few months . So till then there will be only the occasional painting inspired by the breathtakingly beautiful country that is Italy . x
I am an excentic artist that walks to the beat of my own drum with my brush as my weapon of choice......'Starr conveys a vigorous New Wave sensiblity with painterly panache with pop attutiude'
