"Era una ragazza bruna, vestita miseramente; aveva quell'attitudine timida e ruvida che danno la miseria e l'isolamento. I suoi capelli erano neri, folti, arruffati. Nessuno avrebbe potuto dire quanti anni avesse codesta creatura umana; la miseria l'aveva schiacciata da bambina con tutti gli stenti che deformano e induriscono il corpo, l'anima e l'intelligenza. Così era stato di sua madre, così di sua nonna, così sarebbe stato di sua figlia"

Original artwork brings something extra special to a home... creative energy, the soul of the artist, a story. It can take time to find the perfect pieces to complete a home. Some homeowners like to collect as they travel, some like for us to source the art for them, and some appreciate a blend of the two. This lovely little pair is by local artist, Henrietta Sparkman, and we found it at her home on the Central California Art League’s Artists Studio Tour this spring. Already matted and framed in a beautiful silk surround, it was love at first sight. Now it lives happily at home with our lovely client.
