Research. Research everything you
can, spend hours on the computer
and in stores, checking the prices of
both supplies and finished jewelry. Research the quality of your
materials, educate yourself until you
can’t stand to look at the computer
screen and then do it again the next
day. If there’s work out there similar
to yours, either make sure yours is
better or evolve your work. Contin-
uously try to make yourself better, and
never create something you wouldn’t be
proud to wear yourself or sell to your
best friend. And above all, make sure
that you’re living your passion, and it
will never get old.

orn in France and living in
the Unites States for several
years, Duaiv has been a prolific
painter and concert cellist with a career
of more than 40 years. He has painted
wonderful landscapes and city scenes
of Italy and the South of France,
seascapes, street scenes of Paris and
villages, horses and sailboats.
Lately Duaiv has been applying his
arts to boats and especially cars and
motorcycles. For each project, Duaiv
creates a new painting which is then
transferred to the body of the machine.
Duaiv painted a Lamborghini for
the Ft. Lauderdale Boat Show this
October and his newest project is a
BMW K1300S exhibited this week at
incent Feola began painting in 2007.
Without any formal training, he has taught
himself the blending of vibrant colors and
textures. His abstract creations are primarily acrylic
on canvas. Works are in the 30” x 40” size and soon
will be much larger. His love of bright colors comes
from his admiration of Peter Max after a chance
meeting in early 2006.
“Meeting Peter Max was very inspirational early
in my career,” says Vincent, “I can only dream of
reaching anywhere near his brilliance and passion
for his art.” With the support of his beautiful wife
Maria and the support from his family and friends,
Vincent’s creations will continue.
