Original Painting by Matt Beard
15″ x 15″
Painted live on Friday, May 7, 2020 with Paolo Sgallini

“When this pandemic took hold in Italy and we saw their country slowly descend into complete lockdown, shutting down all public spaces, my heart went out to all of Italy. It was an honor to team up with Paolo, who has been out of work as a musician since the pandemic started. He played his heart out one evening from his living room in Italy while I painted the morning away alongside him from my studio here in California. I wanted to honor Italy with the Garibaldi. Yes it’s California’s state fish, but it was named after the father of modern day Italy’s independence.

Back in May, though, California was not on fire. Now we’re locked down with the pandemic and choking in smoke and people we know are losing homes, livelihoods and some of them even their lives. This is a terrible time to live through. I started these live paintings with the fire themes to keep the art ball rolling and support musicians while our world burned around us metaphorically, but with these actual fires raging now, it seems better to just donate my portion to help with fire relief instead. Do what you can. That’s all you can do.”

-Matt Beard
