Why 'davincijane'?

My name is Karen Flack and I consider myself a 'Renaissance woman'. I admire the Renaissance man, Leonardo da Vinci, the painter, musician, inventor, politician, scientist, writer,...the man who had an interest in learning and improving himself.  I have many interests which continue to grow daily and wanted a website where I could share my professions and my interests with others.  I hope you enjoy discovering and learn something from your visit here in the process, and find the full meaning of renaissance, 'rebirth'.

During the art restoration and conservation, the image was cleaned and the paint restored to a section that had worn off.  Notice the lovely vibrancy of the colors and the definition restored when grime is removed from canvas art.

This print on paper had part of the image lifted off, water damage and wear in other areas.  The colors were matched to restore the image and revive some lost coloration.
