Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

With this piece my wife (Helene) & I (Eric) are a collaborative artists. We create a mixed media narrative art form with its own identity and style and a marked element of whimsy. The result is both contemporary and classical, “quirky” and elegant. It draws inspiration from innovators of stylization like Modigliani and continues the grand tradition of mixed media masters such as Gustav Klimt.
We have endeavored to take the techniques of figurative painting, collage and embellishment to a new level, merging them into one striking image. In effect, illustration and assemblage are fused as a harmonious unity.

This , like all our collaborations, are accompanied by an original story:
" For her eighth birthday Angelica’s grandparents Enzio and Imelda take her for an outing in the park. She can’t wait to feed the pigeons and of course she loves her grandparents, but she always has ambivalent feelings about spending time with them. Enzio and Imelda are insufferably dull and grim, as if the years of providing for a large family have drained them of all capacity to enjoy life.
Even here on the park bench they seem oblivious of the beauty all around, as if they don’t even see the gorgeous glowing greens of the many layers of leaves overhead. Apparently they actually see a different world than she does. However Angelica will continue to visit with her grandparents in hopes that by hanging out with them her sense of wonder will “rub off” on Enzio and Imelda. Maybe then they will see her miraculous world!"
