Siren by Terra Chapman, oil, 20" x 24"
From the artist: I am 21 years old and from Virginia. I studied at the Angel Academy for two years, becoming an assistant teacher there. I am currently studying at the Florence Academy of Art, going into my second year. I am extremely interested in everything to do with painting, including anatomy, perspective, physics, philosophy, sculpture, and drawing, etc. I am eager to learn all that I can. While I do attend art academies, I mainly look to the masters of the 15th to 17th centuries, such as Rubens and Ribera, for answers and inspiration.
