"SB Brasilian Carnaval Queen Contest, 2012"
It took me 63 years but I was finally asked to judge a beauty contest at Soul Brasil's 2012 Carnaval Queen Samba Contest. These are the Sambistas I had to vote for. Of course there was also the matter of dancing samba. I like all the brightly colored costumes together on one stage, against the brick wall of Soho.
PaulB's Pointillistic/Impressionist original oil paintings of Samba and various prints and poster formats of a wide variety of subject matter by the Pointillistic/Impressionist oil painter from landscape/waterscape paintings, dance, sports, portrait, to classical figures, flowers, rock and roll, Brazil, and Samba paintings and prints are available for purchase for as little as $24.95 for an 8" x 10" matted print on photo pape. Pointillistic/Impressionist Giclee prints of Samba on real canvas or heavy watercolor paper are available. One of a kind Samba embellished prints, which are Giclee prints retouched in genuine oil paint by PaulB. Unless noted PaulB's original Pointillistic/Impressionist oil paintiings are oil on canvas. Paul Berenson's pointillistic/Impressionist oil paintings are in privale collections around the world, including the downtown Los Angeles Athletic Club and have appeared in numerous publications, including the New York Philharmonic Playbill.
