Artist Elizabeth R. Whelan is captivated by the judges' comments on the Martha's Vineyard Agricultural Fair entries.

These are real comments from real entries, so to protect the innocent, for these paintings Elizabeth chose Ancient Romans to be the fair entrants!

This is the MV Agricultural Fair entry from Lucius Caecilius Iucundus (14 A.D. - fl. c. 62 AD), a banker who lived in the Roman town of Pompeii. He was an an argentarius, a middleman in auctions.

His house still stands and can be seen in the ruins of the city of Pompeii which remain after being partially destroyed by the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD.
This house is known for its beauty, along with some material found about bank book-keeping and wax tablet containing receipts.

Elizabeth Whelan uses museum-quality materials including traditional oil paints and mediums, high-quality canvas and archival rigid panels, and has finished the painting with an archival satin varnish for protection.

The painting is framed in an unfinished maple floating frame.
