Vincent N. Figliola

I was in advertising in NYC for more than 25 years. Some others and I prided ourselves in creativity. In fact, my last television campaign won the Cannes Film Festival Award. But the business side took over completely, and I knew it was over for me. Money just wasn't enough. In many discussions with my wife she kept saying "I think you should be a painter" and I repeatedly said, "are you crazy". We were enjoying a certain lifestyle that wasn't bad...but painting? I thought I was superman until I tried it. There were paintings that refused to be painted.. so I planted a tree instead. As frustration mounted, more trees were planted until people passed my house by. They couldn't find it. Painting comes from my heart and recently at our State Capitol, I received The NM Governor's Award for Artistic Excellence and Lifetime Achievement. Take it from me, this doesn't happen every day. I don't plant trees take a look. I hope you won't bedisappointed.
