Maltese Falcon

Maltese Falcon, 36 x 30, oil on linen

This is a detail of my painting  Maltese Falcon. The painting will be shown at CK Contemporary Gallery. Show opens May 21.

This painting is my homage to San Francisco. The iconic hard-boiled detective, Sam Spade still lives on in the City by the Bay.

 The Maltese Falcon is a 1929 detective novel by Dashiell Hammett, originally serialized in the magazine Black Mask beginning with the September 1929 issue.In 1998, the Modern Library ranked The Maltese Falcon 56th on its list of the 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century.
