Ok, Beth wrote a fantastic review. I'll admit it, I was weepy throughout. The words were thoughtful, thought provoking and described the essence of what I love to do best.
I will also confide, I had no idea what disegno meant. Thanks to Wikipedia now I do:
"Disegno is the design, usually in the form of a drawing, that the artist had in mind before beginning to carve or paint their work. The concept of disegno is related to the inspiration of the artist and their imagination. The Renaissance intellectuals believed that the disegno was the model of God's creation."
