Sir John and the Knights of the Long Table

Eleven of us live here at beautiful Schamelot, and we have a small 20 acre farm of chickens, emus, two dogs, 13 or so cats and a cockateil named Sassafrass.

Family Artists

Yesterday my nonna and uncle came for a visit and my uncle brought me two more of his paintings. The first is a Modigliani, my favorite one!

The other is St. Philip by George de la Tour:

Last year he gave me my first Modigliani:

And a reproduction of a painting my Zio Dino painted years ago and which has hung in my grandmother's kitchen since before I was born:

My Mother is an artist, too, and for our new house warming gift she gave me the Sweet Kissing Icon:

There are quiet a few artists in my family (my Father, my sister, my daughter and my son, too). One day I'll post some more of their masterpieces!
