I love the details!  Over the years, there have been commissions that have just been a joy. This picture shows a panel of Grottesca.  This term encompasses detailed ornamental design that includes foliage and fanciful figures. The term comes from the work that was discovered in subterranean caverns, or grottoes below the remains of the Golden House of Nero. The designs became popular during the 16th century with the many artists who came to study them. [It came to proliferate the work of Raphael, Pinturicchio and Gaudenzio Ferrari, among the more notable.}

My panel was designed to reflect my client’s love of music, and thus features the Muse of Music.

It’s all in the details.
