Musician & Painter ex·tra·or·di·naire
We were minding our own business, as usual, and wandering up Victory Blvd., aimlessly, as usual. We strolled into Marie’s Gourmet for some chilled quaff and SoEuro fare.
*By the by, anything you select at this establishment is certain to satisfy, so rest easy. This particular month was additionally a surprise for the eyes. They have a wonderful series of Impressionist paintings by a man named Rob Padovano.
We personally do not see a lot of seriously ‘high-art’ in SI-nyc, nor exceptional work here in SI. This is to specifically say “ART” that can “Raise the bar over” other NYC areas like Williamsburg or Bushwick in Brooklyn, but this one painter from Staten Island has some handsomely framed work that’s ready for sale.
