Frank Bruno Is A Serious Artist No BS

The title of the above painting by Frank Bruno is Work Hard And Save your Money. Note the donkey is being driven with a stick and chasing a carrot it will never reach. Click on the picture to enlarge it.

I knew Frank Bruno back in 1969 and 1970 in Washington, D.C.. I was working at the Corcoran Gallery of Art and knew many of the DC artists at that time. I visited Frank Bruno's apartment on Conn. Ave. at Dupont Circle. And there he showed me and some other people a few of his paintings. The one shown above is one that he showed to us. Frank is a serious artist. No BS.

If you like your art sugar coated don't bother looking at any more of his paintings. If you would like to see some visionary art click on the link below. There is a gallery page where you can see many of his paintings. He moved back to Douglas, Arizona in 1970. That is where he was originally from. It was nice to find his work on the web.
Over on the right of the above page is a link to a Gallery of his paintings. Just click on the word Gallery and then click on the individual paintings by name on that page. And check his bio page also.
This guy is a serious artist. And a very good one as well.
