The image Love is from a book I published on art and poetry in 2010 called, Viaggio: A Journey through Life. The book is based on a woman's journey through life told through images and poetry. From dealing with grieve, loss, depression and finally acceptance and hope. The Love image is based on finally finding love after so many years and the confidence it brings in ones self and sexuality.
