Once, some time ago, I lived in Italy for 8 years.. The classic scenery & the Italian obsession with beauty influenced my inspiration. Now it all seems like a dream.

“Art is a form of play rejoicing in the face of God.”; Hans Rookmaaker

This painting is inspired by a verse in the book of Hebrews chapter 13.

I was not raised in church or Bible reading. Yet, I remember as a child of 4,5,6,&7, longing for a lovely home full of gardens, harmony, & sparkles. Especially because of the untimely early death of my father, I desired a country where there was no sorrow or grief. I called this country ” fairyland”.
