I am dedicating this, my latest piece of artwork entitled “The Rock”, to the memory of two great men, Rocky Marciano and my father Lou Guarino who recently passed away. One was a great fighter and friend to my father and the other a great father and friend to all whom he met. Both were heroes to many, both unmistakably Italian!
This was the last piece of my art that my father got to see and hold before he died. He remarked on the intensity of the colors as he gazed on it fondly with warm remembrance of his good friend, Rocky Marciano.
