Alphonse Mucha

I am so in love with this artist. His work is amazing. I was introduced to his work when I was in Port Jefferson one day at an art gallery. This one to be exact http://imaginegallery.ifp3.com/. Not from Long Island? Not familiar with Port Jefferson? Well it's a small town on the North Shore of Long Island next to the Long Island Sound. It has many small shops and restaurants. I practically grew up there when I was younger. I love it there because it has so many great memories for me, new and old. http://www.portjeff.com/
Off topic for a second, my two favorite places to eat there are http://toastcoffeehouse.com/ and http://ruvorestaurant.com/

Ok so back to how I came to love Alphonse Mucha, while I was at the art gallery I saw this painting by Viktor Shvaiko called "Les Noces de Jeannette." It was stunning !

If you look close at the blue building on the left you will see some of Alphonse Mucha's work. So from there I was interested. I looked up more of his work and immediately fell more in love. The posters and paintings are gorgeous. Here are some of my favorites, some.








I'd love to have a tattoo of his work on me but I am not one for large tattoos on myself. I feel that would be the only way to do his work justice. So maybe for now I will frame some of his works and put them in my office.
