Ancora Imparo





Ancora Imparo: A little gold piece 15 x 15 x 3.5cm
copper & gold leaf, collage & painting on canvas.
It is a little Latin quote attributed to Michaelangelo
translated to "I am still learning". It is also Monash University's motto.

One of my favourite quotes - I use it over and over. And so true - what's it all about if we aren't still learning?

given its monash's motto - I think I should be able to lay claim to this piece eh? ;~)
