This painting is the definition of artistic license. It begins with Velazquez’s figure of Vulcan from the painting of Vulcan’s Forge at the Prado Museum. Instead of holding a hammer, my Vulcan is holding a flower. I gave him the beautiful face of Willy Adames, a baseball player for the Tampa Bay Rays. The bird on the tree branch is an American Kestrel.
