Two children with the same dream.  They both dream about being artists someday.  But both children have very large road blocks in the way.  Marietta is a girl and in the 16th century, it was unheard of for girls to become artists.  Piero is owned by a ship's captain and a slave can never become an artist either.  For a few short weeks, these two children come together and dream of what life might be like if they could fulfill their dreams.
SUBJECTS:     Artists -- Fiction.
