Viva Italia and Street Painting

When the Center for Hearing and Speech asked me to join them and create a classic Italian street painting for Channel 11, Great Day Houston morning show, I said yes! I was excited to be a part of the show featuring “Viva Italia”, a show highlighting the Italian Festival and all things Italian, like art! I immediately began to search for the best piece of art for the 8 foot by 8 foot space.

Lilibeth André recreates piece by Raphael

I found it! I had recently read that a small portrait was confirmed to be the last piece by Raphael, a wonderful master of Renaissance art, and one of my favorite painters. His work portrays many madonna and child compositions as well as several portraits. This piece is thought to have been a study for a larger project. I thought it was the perfect piece to share with the audience.

As part of the program, I had the pleasure of meeting Debra Duncan who is very creative herself. It was great to participate and I had a lot of fun sharing a little bit of art on the show.

You can see the progression of the work at my website although due to technical difficulties with my web service provider, I am not able to upload my update at this time but hope they will fix the glitch very soon.

    I’ve tried a couple of times, now, and can’t get the video to work. Bummer.
