Original Oil Painting Florentia

This painting was inspired by one of four allegorical sculptures in the art collection of Florence, Italy's famous Pitti Palace. The colored swirls are inspired by the calligraphy so typical of the Renaissance City. There is a touch of metallic in some of the curling shapes, although in the painting "Florentia," the metallic is a copper color to work with the warmth of this original painting. Traditional Florentine calligraphy uses a gold metallic.

"Florentia" is beautfully framed. The play of light fascinated the artist, who used her fingers, in part, to paint some of the more translucent areas.
