As a amateur Painter, I started this painting with just a plain country side scene with some distant mountains. But then I got creative and added a Tuscany Villa. I kept at it , as my creativity kicked in and I began adding characters from the 1600's. My addition of Characters became a real challenge, as I had few references to Tuscany residents of the 16th century.

A nod to my mother, as many of my pieces are. Glavant and Lollygag, 2 words my mother used, have been given faces. She was an artist herself, a fashion illustrator, and my elongated limbs reference that. I love illustrating with the human figure and have a special affection for 1920s design.

Title or Location: Space
The untouched beauty of space can only be seen with high powered telescopes usually beyond the reach of most people yet we are graced with photographs sent back from our Hubble Telescope for us all to marvel. My entire body fills with unconditional awe at the majesty that surrounds us and capturing it on canvas has become my greatest aspiration. I cannot explain the feelings experienced while painting outside of one word - spiritual.
