November 1st – Love this time of the year. The colors, the cool nights, pom pom season. Yes, I’m a huge 49’er football fan. But this wasn’t painted for the love of football. It was a tribute painting to my dear, close friend and passionate jeweler, Yvonne Giambrone-Martin. She passed in January 2022. Yvonne was the light in any room and especially at my gallery with a great laugh and zest for what’s next. She loved to create her one-of-a-kind sterling silver work for her galleries from New York to California. Her work was described as “ethnic, mechanical and contemporary”. She also loved to garden and one day at the gallery brought in a bouquet of these flowers. You are missed everyday Yvonne.
