      2) "Treasured Past" by Alexei Butirskiy. Gazing out his window is Paris, Alexei decided to recreate his first window scene, "A Room with a View." The artist has selected mementos from his past and using the sculpture of Nefertiti as his center piece, has created a work that exposes the roots of our past. The pocket watch resting on the stack of worn books reminds us that time has stood still for a "Treasured Past". (

      ALEXEI BUTIRSKIY ~ Treasured Past. I saw this painting in a Key West Gallery. Beautiful. You'd have to view it to appreciate it. How artists capture light has always fascinated me. The Gallery salesman took the painting into a showroom for us and mounted it on a wall covered in black velvet. He slowly turned down the lighting. Wow! The painting took on a life of its own. I felt if I had reached out to touch the candle flame I would have been burned.

      That view would be enough, but add the still life and one would never leave that window.
