It is my nephew ing. Plarent Tirana. He is living in Washington D.C. I have missed him nearly 14 years. During his 5 days staying in Toronto (from 6 to 11 November 2011) I have painted tgis portrait.(oil 0n canvas, 16 x 20 inches), by Petro Dhimitri.
I was born in Tirana, Albania. In 1956 I finished fine art college in Tirana, and after this college I graduated from the Tirana University as a teacher for Albanian language and literature. Since 1962 I worked as a journalist, until 1993 when I retired. At the same time, as an artist, I took part in many local and national art shows. In 1995 I had a solo exhibition in Tirana. In Toronto, I am a member of the Don Valley Art Club, as well as the Central Connection Art Club. I love Toronto and Canada so much.
