Jeff MacNelly. Original Paintings & Limited Edition Giclees


The Relic


Just about everyone collects something and Jeff’s predilection was old license plates.

This one came from “90 Miles to Cuba” an antique shop owned by Linda Rieke down the street from the Gallery on Greene in Key West.


 Linda has a wonderful aesthetic and always has fascinating antiques and collectables especially signs and old plates. Jeff always visited when he was delivering paintings to the gallery a few doors down.

He came in one day like looking like a child on Christmas morning with this Cuban plate wanting to know all about it. “You speak Spanish Nance. What does this all mean?” “Well, it’s a plate from June or July of 1959.” I said. “Oh my! And what does particular mean?” he asked. “It means private Jeff”, I said a little confused at his enthusiasm. “Look at this Nance”, says Jeff, “it must be from the last private car in all of Cuba. That was when Castro attacked the Machado barrack.”

Jeff was a big history buff and liked that Cuban plate so much that he used it in his first Trompe L’oeil (trick the eye) painting called “The Relic”. It looks so life-like that we had to put a big sign up saying “DO NOT TOUCH!”
