Good day, people! Last February, the Bunny and I had a small tour of the Bozzetos Exhibit in our school since we saw they showcased Italian-inspired artworks, and we were eager to see these.

We are greeted by a print of Firenze (also known as Florence) by Giorgio Vasari.

As we entered the hall, I was happy to see this paper model of the famous Florence Cathedral. It was wonderful to see another beautiful model since I had a deep interest in this field.
And look! Another model made from scraps and found materials as we entered the gallery.

And we also took pictures of some of the beautiful works there (including an antique door of the Gallery).

And in gratitude to my amazing college professors, I just like to dedicate this work of mine to them. They were my teachers who helped shape my skills for the past five years.

It is a watercolor painting on paper I made about two months ago.

The painting shows a motherly figure teaching a boy with a book. I never encountered a nun teacher before, or rather I never had a nun teacher, only men from the religous order of Marist Brothers. My work here was inspired by Medieval marginalia figures (you can take a look what's Medieval Marginalia about in this humorous blog about it), though it is unfortunate to say that I forgot what exactly inspired this design, and from which medieval book did I take inspiration from, but the scene I think is about St. Anne teaching her daughter Mary.

And speaking of Medieval art, I just want to share to you an interesting Tumblr site which is all about Medieval Illustrations, paintings, and facts about the era. You can visit the site here.

As of now, I am looking for a job this month, and my goal (hopefully) is that I should have a job before June. Well, I'm just hoping for the best!
