**About this painting: The Benedictine 12th Annual Awards, and Vatican Consideration of his work in their Gallery of Contemporary Religious Art.
When DIEGO learned he did not win, he retaliated, and obliterated the BENEDICTINE bottle and its labels. Before I could pick up my paid-in-advance "BENEDICTINE" painting, DIEGO had clandestinely painted out all evidence of his disappointing BENEDICTINE experience. DIEGO transformed the BENEDICTINE bottle into a 14" pink pitcher adding a handle.
Compare the original Benedictine Bottle to its overpainted image of the pink pitcher with handle.

Impressionism, Cubism, Surrealism, and Fauvism all experienced the hand of Diego Voci who was fascinated by the beauty and mystery of the face and figure, whether the female body nude or in ballet, or the etched lines of life's hardships in an old man's face, or the grace and power of the horse. Diego's versatility was his strength. Diego not only saw and realized human frailty, the desire and longing of the human to be something more, seeking but not to find; but also he understood man's animal instinct to overpower, offset by the object's instinct to resist.
