"[D]escriptions of techniques...are carefully presented. This story is unique." KLIATT 11/01/07 KLIATT
Paint first with your eyes. These are words Lavinia Fontana hears again and again as she eavesdrops on her father's lessons with his male apprentices. Though her artist father, Prospero Fontana, uses his eyes with great precision in his painting, he does not see the fire and talent in his own daughter. Feeling nearly invisible, Vini struggles to gain the approval of a father focused on his own desire for a son to carry on his work. And while Vini sneaks paper and paint from a studio she is not allowed to be a part of, a tender romance blossoms where she least expects it and a tarot card portending "death and darkness" threatens to change her life.
