La Giostra (Merry-Go-Round/ Carousel) - Original Pastel Painting

      This pastel and charcoal drawing is one of the current Italy-inspired series, specifically of historic Florence (Firenze, Italia, as she is known in her own language). The title of this original artwork is La Giostra which means "merry-go-round" or "carousel."

     One viewer remarked that this is a cool merry-go-round because it invites all ages. The kids will enjoy riding on the horse (with a bouquet of flowers on it!) while the grown-ups can snuggle up in the moon-shaped carriage. In reality, I first fell in love with this giostra in Piazza della Repubblica when I noticed that there was a painting of a bare-breasted woman on the inner wall, between the mirrors. I cannot imagine that even existing in America and I found that quite charming.

     However, for various reasons, I decided to replace her with a male nude figure (except for his headband). I borrowed him from Michelangelo, as a nod to one of the most famous offspring from the Renaissance City.

     La Giostra is 23 x 17 inches. The pastel and charcoal drawing was created on the medium brown Roma-brand paper that I brought back to Texas from Florence, Italy. I hope you enjoy this artwork.
