“Call it self-confidence. Call it cockiness – call it anything, but it has always been true of me that when I get an idea by the coattails I can’t let go. I choke it to death.”Frank Sinatra

Frank Sinatra painting

Artist: Nicholas Volpe. Oil on board. 49.5″ x 69.5.” From the upstairs banquet room of the now torn down Friars Club of Beverly Hills, which was formed in 1947. I’ve seen this one personally where it used to hang. It was amazing. But then again, the Frairs Club building was amazing before it was disastrously renamed the Beverly Hills CENSORED Club in 2007 and then shut down. Incidentally, the name change came as a result of a lawsuit won by the New York Friars Club.

The Sinatra painting was sold at auction in Dallas, TX, for $29,875.00.
