trinacria symbol of sicily original paintingTrinacria
22" X 28" Original Mixed Media Collage
Giclee print, acrylic paint, studded with Swarovski Crystals

The Trinacria is a symbol of Sicily where my father was born.  The idea for this painting came while I was focusing my thoughts on the difficulties my father endured coming to America and rearing his Italian / American children at a time and place where being Italian was just not acceptable.  I have a deep admiration for his tenacity and ability to suffer in silence while totally focusing his energies on achieving the American dream.
