One of the most beneficial things you can do for yourself is to keep an open mind; by staying open to new ideas and ways of life, you provide yourself with endless opportunities to grow as a person.
Making the move to New York City was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Living here hasn’t been easy by any stretch of the imagination, but it has been rewarding beyond measure. Despite the difficulties, this city has brought out the kid in me again because I see every day as new adventure with the opportunity to learn more about myself and the world around me.

“The critical moment came just before the outbreak touched high-water mark, and the doctor had good reason for feeling anxious. There was a real shortage of man-power both for the higher posts and for the rough work.”

Recostruction of the Tempietto of San Pietro in Montorio on the top of the gianicolo hill in Rome. Designed by Bramante in the Renaissance. A beautiful example of italian historical architecture. The model has a lot of details (i needed it), so it takes a while to render. No materials.

“The Lady in Gray,” 2018, and the “Lucan portrait,” tempera grassa on panel, 60 x 40 cm. (24 x 16”) 1459 - 1523
And how delightfully crazy life is—you become the one you love. Against all the odds, beyond reason—the divine has a playful side. The divine loves beauty, but humor even more. And so, I trespassed into the realm of “selfie” and this is what I brought back—the spittin’ image of one “Lucan portrait” of Leonardo da Vinci. Two Tuscans, carry the unique Etruscan gene, not yet erased by the ravages of time. I snapped it, like many of us are apt, excused or so I thought, by my 60th winter, something along the lines of silver hair and silver linings.
The “Lucan portrait” was discovered where it rested in the cupboard of a private aristocratic home in Acerenza, Italy, the owners believed it was Galileo. On reaching the media in 2011, a self-portrait was ruled out. From 2011- 2018 it remains the focus of heated debate over attribution to Leonardo. There exists a citation from 1815, held in Parma, professing it is indeed, the work of Leonardo, in possession of “the noble family” Russo, at the Palazzo Baranello nella strada Cedronia of the Duke of Baranello. The white feather bears touches of titanium white, but otherwise it dates true. “PINXIT MEA” is painted on the backside in capitalized “mirror writing” running down the left side, not across center. PINXIT MEA from Latin: “one painted,” was added to an artist’s signature, Late Middle Ages and the Renaissance. Raphael sometimes abbreviated it P, PIN, or PINX.
The portrait depicts Leonardo as a blue-eyed, middle-aged man. Carbon testing placed it 1459- 1523, contemporary with Leonardo who lived from 1452- 1519. The script is in “iron gall” an ink Leonardo used in his Atlantic Codex. Nd gloriously, they found three fingerprints, and one left index fingerprint matches the same fingerprint on the ebony beads of Leonardo’s “Lady with an Ermine.” As Obama said after the 2016 election, “ When the going gets weird, the weird go pro.” Bring it on. .
Ship of fools ~ Hieronymus Bosch ~ 1490-1500 ~ Louvre, Paris.
Feel like I've been captaining this ship all week, counting down the days until the weekend.
Part of a tryptich of 3 panels. This incomplete section of the panel is now kept in the Louvre. The two other sections show an "Allegory of Gluttony" and "Death and the Miser". The image here shows ten people adrift in a boat, two others overboard. In the centre of the group is a nun playing a lute and a friar. To the left of the image, a woman appears to be about to hit a man who is dragging a flagon in the water.
To the right of the picture another guy appears to be puking over the side. Above him, a man dressed as a fool, is drinking from a cup. One of the boatmen is using a huge ladle instead of an oar, the other has a flagon on the end of his oar. Dangling from the mast is a pancake which the main group may be wanting to eat. Climbing up the mast is another character who is about to carve some meat from a roasted bird strapped to the mast/tree. Sitting in the last appears an owl, which in medieval times was a symbol of bad luck.
Overall the painting is of a group of fools adrift in the sea of life, eating and drinking to excess. They are without morals and rudderless despite the church being on board. They all are lacking direction in life and oblivious to the men overboard.
