Exactitude is not truth

There is an inherent truth which must be disengaged from the outward appearance of the object to be represented, this is the only truth that matters,,,,,,,Exactitude is not truth…Henri Matisse

Ritz Theatre angel stolen…….. from the memoirs of Pierre AJ Sabourin

Pierre AJ Sabourin

All of my friends should know I painted two angels to commemorate the restoration of the Ritz theatre in Jacksonville Florida,the oldest surviving black theater in the state. Both paintings were from the biblical scene the dream of Jacob’s. the first the angel of contemplative life which you see before you survives in Canada and the second the Angel of Active life. which was a descending black angel with outstretched hands in saffron gowns. both paintings were inspired by the works of 17th century artist  Estaban Murillo of Spain. I want everyone to know the angel of active life was stolen from my home in Jacksonville Florida in 2007 measuring 4ft x 5ft.
