The Florence Biennale was a wonderful experience allowing me to meet and interact with 600 artists from around the world. The quality and diversity of the work was astounding as were all the personalities that went with it. Given that I am focusing on energy fields and gemstones in my present work, the series of lectures were extremely interesting since they were comparing art to various sciences including physics and chemistry. My paintings were very well received and resonated with many of the Italian viewers and commissions are pending. All in all it was a very positive experience.
