Amy was a kind-hearted woman, and her mind was completely inclined toward her passion for art. Growing up in a stringent household, her family often coerced her into studying prestigious courses, and her father, Hershel, wanted her to become a lawyer. But Amy had different plans; she wanted to become an artist. Her love for artistry grew with each passing year, and to excel in her skills, she decided to stay in Florence for six weeks. The six-week course would provide her with a chance to display her artwork in an exhibition. Moreover, Amy was never interested in any other aspect of her life. Finding a partner was next to impossible as she was already suffering from commitment issues.

Well, her parents’ history of separation was responsible for everything. Even though her father, Hershel, was happily married to Maxine, Amy and her sister Zora couldn’t take their eyes off their mother, Lynn. She suffered the most, and they never wanted to go through the same pain. But Lino’s arrival turned everything upside down as he showed her the true meaning of love and life. With him, things were fun and exciting, as he usually dedicated his complete attention to Amy. Lino always supported her with her artistic abilities, and his support helped her to enhance her skills. Lino was an artist himself, an artist of culinary arts, and the main motive of his life was to cook and feed people. He created new dishes and inventions to increase his reach.

Time passed, and the duo managed to surpass all the challenges until Lino was diagnosed with a rare soft tissue cancer called leiomyosarcoma. After going through eighteen months of extensive chemotherapy, Lino was finally cancer free, and to celebrate this victory; they invited little Idalia Rose into their lives. Her adoption changed everything for them, and Lino spent most of his time with Idalia while Amy worked hard at the Watts Tower Arts Center. Amy previously worked at a prestigious art gallery, but her efforts were often ignored; she was rewarded with a promotion to maintain artistic relations. But Amy wanted to choose the Watts Tower job since it provided her with the opportunity that her previous job didn’t. Teaching young children made her realize that her art could change lives.

Amy’s father, Hershel, convinced her to sort this out with her husband. And guess what? Lino was supportive. Even though the pay was less, Lino wanted her to choose the Watts Tower job since it would bring her closer to the art world. Even after Idalia’s adoption, Amy spent most of her time in the center itself. But gradually, she learned to balance her work to nurture Idalia, and Lino began his cooking class and taught several young individuals. Meanwhile, Amy used her free time to draw since the art gallery job took a huge toll on her, and she couldn’t focus on her artwork, and this was the only time that she used to focus on herself. Amy subjected stories and new ideas through her paintings, and Lino noticed them all.
