There is an occupation known as painting, which calls for imagination, and skill of hand, in order to discover things not seen, hiding themselves under the shadow of natural objects, and to fix them with the hand, presenting to plain sight what does not actually exist. Cennino Cennini (1370 - 1440)
Il Pittore has kept his promise. I have returned to my Muse. This time I heard her lyrical verse at the threshold of Her domain. And She has filled me again, with Her generous flow of creative flux. The result is for you to judge. I know I walked away from this painting session, a richer man. The world as we know it maybe crumbling, falling to pieces. My world is just beginning to take shape, it is not falling apart, for I use Love and Truth as mortar, the same grout that holds Our Infinite Universe together.
