When once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.” – Leonardo da Vinci

I live a quiet Australian country-style life with my perfect husband, cat, parrot and of course my art. As a Fine Art student I promised myself a graduation gift when the big day arrives; nothing less than a trip to Paris! It is there and then that I imagine I will experience the ‘perfect night out.’ Surrounded by the history and art of the Renaissance era in the magnificent city of lights with my beloved sister (from London) and my equally beloved husband; I will be in artistic heaven in the company of da Vinci and many other admired artists’ works. Ask me again then to describe my perfect night out. 😉
