    One More Before You GoDaniel Del OrfanoLaMantia Gallery

    Cover Artist - Daniel Del Orfano is a New York artist who was born and raised on Long Island. He received his BFA in Art Education at Dowling College in Oakdale, and was teaching full time by the fall of 2001. Though extremely rewarding, this was not his true calling and Daniel decided to divert his attention from teaching art to creating art. In the summer of 2005, he formed The Renaissance Workshop. As demand for commissioned work increased, Daniel began developing his expressive style, implementing techniques that emphasized texture over realism. Though the work depicted realistic scenes, the effects produced an almost ethereal feeling. Daniel Del Orfanos work depicts life, not as it may be, but more as it is remembered - a snapshot, not of a particular moment but of an overall memory.

    From the Publisher

    Jim

    It's hard to believe that I'm writing this on the first day of February. It seems like it was only yesterday that we were dealing with Sandy, and soon after that, the anticipated end of the world. Well, it's plain to see that we are still here and that life does go on.

    These past few months have been difficult and trying for everyone. It was nice to see that as a whole we are all in the same boat and we will put others before ourselves. It makes me happy that even with the world around us getting smaller and technology soaring beyond anything most of us could imagine, we are still a community and we are still dependent on each other for survival. Spring seems to be just around the corner and with it a promise for new beginnings. As the great Martin Luther King, Jr. said, "Take the first steps in faith. You don't have to see the whole staircase. Just take the first step."

    If there is one gift that says Valentines Day, it is flowers. Whether it is for your wife, sweetheart, mother or daughter, giving flowers can be a romantic gesture or just shows how much you care. This Valentines Day, forget about the traditional bouquet and treat that special someone to the sensual power of aroma.

    When we experience an aroma, we connect to special memories and emotions we associate with that smell. A beautiful sunrise on the beach, starlit walk at night or a special kiss in the rain, naturally derived aromas offer us a bond with the Earth.

    At the heart of every Spa Adriana experience is an abundance of pure flower and plant-based aromas incorporating essential oils from plants that are sustainably harvested or organically grown whenever possible.

    Stop stressing over whether to buy one or two dozen roses, giving flowers this Valentines Day just got a lot easier with these four beautiful gift sets designed to promote personal well-being through the power of aroma:

    Give Flowers For Less StressEnjoy Stress-FixTM Body Lotion, Stress-FixTM Soaking Salts and

    Stress-FixTM Concentrate all
