Cape Cod. oil on canvas, 30 x 40, in. ©Accorsi Studios. SOLD
Painting of a beautiful scene on Cape Cod. This painting is a commissioned piece for an artist friend and was a joy to do.
I was awestruck by this painting by Marcel Duchamp at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. It was the first time I wanted a painting so badly I wanted to buy it regardless of the cost. I looked for prints in the museum store, with no luck. Then realized the only way I would be satisfied would be to copy the work.
I decided to do this work in watercolor to get transparency and layering in the variety of colors in this work. I have this painting for sale at an obnoxious price as I don’t want to let it go, but it could be prod away. Send an email if you have an interest.
From the Philadelphia Museum of Art:
In this portrait of his father, Duchamp presents a penetrating psychological study of a shrewd yet thoughtful man. This is one of many portraits the artist painted in Rouen, France, in 1910, at the age of twenty-three, and it demonstrates his intense interest in Paul Cézanne, who died in 1907 and whom he called “the father of us all.”1 Duchamp described the portrait as “a typical illustration of my cult for Cézanne mixed up with filial love.”2Cézanne’s influence is clearly evident in the balanced structure, muted tones, and planar construction of the painting, one of Duchamp’s strongest early works

Today the source of joy and loyalty and all things wonderful in my life, Sunny - turned 9 today.
Since his life is short and he’s such a wonderful being - every night he gets a massage, put into bed with his toys, and as many walks as he wants.
Here’s to all the wonderful pets that teach us so much about how to live, be better to each other, and just happy!
The Comet. oil on canvas, 42 x 72 in. ©Accorsi Studios, 2013.
This painting is of a childhood roller coaster in Hershey, PA. The Comet is an integral part of my new series Fonderia (foundry in Italian). A large painting over 6ft long, the streaks of the coaster supports were carved in with knives, eye droppers, and even a few mustard squirt bottles to achieve the effect I was looking for in this highly expressive piece.
All of the paintings of Hershey subjects in this new series have proceeds from the sale of each painting being donated to the Hershey Historical Society. They are working tirelessly to preserve what makes Hershey one of America’s most incredible towns to visit.
This week Alec sits down with painter Eric Fischl, who became known in the 1980s art scene for work that explores issues of sexuality and power and what it means to become a man.

Pronio’s is a neighborhood Italian market in my family’s hometown of Hershey, Pennsylvania. Ever since I could walk I would go to Pronio’s and take in the smell of the incredible Italian foods and friendly faces. Pronio’s is still in tact and open in Hershey.

Unprepared for the elements, I walked 10 blocks from my family’s apartment to the 59th street bridge. This diner seemed to glow in the gloomy weather with its white brick and welcoming lights.
Half of its sign was working, it was a scene I’ll always remember, New York has a sense of balance and aesthetic beauty among its concrete and steel.
