************* The Short Self-Pitch (SSP) *********************

Luciana's Work

Dynamic and Dramatic

The Renaissance Woman….A woman with a wide range of roles and a

splendor of colors used to express a Woman's many facets.

Her figurative representational style does not depict actual lifestudies

but represents the inner essence of woman she has

encountered…displaying their inner beauty and strength, with a lyrical

and sensual approach. Her style is dynamic with bold colors reminiscent

of the French Fauves especially Matisse used to express their emotions.

Her Dramatic compositions take the viewer into the picture plane and

bring them into the narrative lyrical sensual world.

Welcome back to the HEPN! Sonja's vacation went well, despite 2

connections en route to Spain and a trip lasting more than 12 hours. The

weather in Madrid was a pleasant change from the U.S. heat wave –

consistently in the high 60s – perfect for strolling and visiting the

Prado. The Alhambra in Granada is an astonishing place – a palace from

the Middle Ages, when Spain was ruled by Muslims (who invaded in 711 and

were finally defeated by Ferdinand and Isabel in 1492). It's certainly

worth spending the majority of the day. Seville was warmer than the

other cities – not surprising given its southern location (Granada is

also in the south, but in the mountains). The Alcazar (castle) is

lovely, albeit not as impressive as the Alhambra, and has nice gardens –

so much so that 2 wedding parties were spotted having their photos taken

there. The cathedral is one of the largest in the world, and Columbus is

allegedly buried there.

One of the perks of using frequent flyer miles is the option for a free

stopover. In this case, the free stopover was Amsterdam on October 3.

Despite the rain, it is a nice city, albeit quirky. The Anne Frank House

is an essential part of any visit – a haunting reminder of the Holocaust

and a good visit for history buffs. The Van Gogh Museum is overpriced,

but interesting. The RijksMuseum was unfortunately closed for

renovations, so a great dealing of walking and seeing the city was done.

Bicycling seems to be the national pastime, as we saw more bicycles

there than anywhere else we have been.
