We might go on and on about the commonalities, if we wanted we could list the difference as well. However, that is not our focus here. What we are looking at in this series of post is how they are aligned.
If we look closely at artists we know, and famous art work then perhaps we can see the parallels clearly.Leonardo da Vinci is an obvious choice, as the Renaissance man and inventor. I have a real affinity for Da Vinci for many reasons. I even named my dog, Vinci or Da Vinci after him. (and my brother always told me I was adopted…just teasing-like any brother he picks on his little sister) Leonardo was also born in April, on the 15th, and my birthday is April 12th. I have always been fascinated by his love of science and inventions and his daring in using new art materials. In some cases he invented his own materials and colors.
