Colette Calascione

I am suffering from a severe case of bloggers amnesia and can't (for the life of me) remember whether I have told you, that should I ever come into money the first thing I will be doing is gonna get me one of Colette Calascione's paintings for all the stories that they tell, the history painted into the line of each portraits subjects body, the references to so much art gone before, embroidered sexuality and secrets destined to forever remain untold.. Oh and the colour and pattern... did I mention the glorious overlay of colour and pattern? I did? Forgive me: age is catching up with me. Thirty seven in a few weeks, twelve years old just yesterday.

Well that last line just sums up a life...

If I squint, I can see what you see...maybe, a wee bit. That second painting depicts the perkiest bosom. Don't mind me, fifty-rtft in two weeks, twelve only yesterday.

Hi, Allison
I enjoy reading your blog. Thanks for introducing this artist-new to me. And I was happy because the nude model's body resembled mine--realistic, I thought. For years I've hoped "rubenesque" would become stylish. May we all someday afford the things we love. Abby, a new reader from across the pond

Alison, I'm sorry about mis-spelling your name. That is a pet-peeve of mine and now I've done it! Heavens to Betsy! Abby

Goodness, they are so rich and beautiful - thank you for posting this! I'm going to fetch a cup of tea and really wallow in her gallery.

And I like your new site!

And my word verification is 'fanlate', which is rather appropriate.

Great paintings - in fact great boobs on one of them - it reminds me that it was a wise decision to spend on an uplift rather than more art!
Love your new revamped blog by the way Alison.
