TW Poremba at the Learned Owl [7/9]

Join us on July 9th from 1 to 3pm as we welcome TW Poremba. Poremba will be signing his book, Sfumato.

 

When a church community worker in inner city Cleveland discovers ten-year-old Gary's immense artistic genius he propels Gary upon a life-long adventure of international artistic acclaim. Renowned as the greatest ever disciple of Leonardo Da Vinci's sfumato painting technique in portraiture, Gary masters the smokey blending of color and light that obscures the rough edges of life and endows two dimensional paintings with living, breathing beauty like Leonardo's portrait of Mona Lisa. Gary's mastery of sfumato in his portrait of Old Tony leads him to fame and fortune. Unfortunately, the rough edges of real life snatch away his loving wife Dianah and nine-year old daughter Lily in a tragic mountain fire near Durango, Colorado, and send Gary into a heart wrenching spiral of darkness. Back to Cleveland he heads broken, alone and battling the dark. But on the way Gary rediscovers how life has sent him teachers, encouragers, helpers, healers and fast new friends of faith. All of them pick him up, shatter his darkness and set his feet upon his new life path to pay forward those blessings that others have given him.
