    Awesome, that's a classic. <3 I went to the museum in Amsterdam, it was pretty fantastic. I would love to see his other work that's in NY.

    I like your taste. The depth in what is portrayed here is underrated. It speaks to the acceptance of all races and sexual orientations. And it serves as a reminder of where this nation once was with respect to tobacco products.

    And velvet.

    I have always believed that it speaks to the duality of man and also tackling one's interpersonal conflicts when facing both existential issues and moral conflicts in a post 9/11 construct.

    Yes, you are right. In fact, I heard Art Donavan and Art Vandelay speak on this very issue at a symposium in 2003.

    They were simply brilliant.

    Yes, in fact.... I attended that very symposium.

    It was held at the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna.





    The Kunsthistorisches also has a very nice snack bar.

    Vincent Van Gogh - starry night

    He painted Starry Night over the Rhône before Starry Night.
    The latter is said to have been painted while he was in an asylum.
    I was able to see the former in person at the Musee d'Orsay, as well as one of his self portraits.
    The textures in his paintings are fascinating, especially in person.ok4t41ualaj9.jpeg

    All my favorite art tends to be from artists I know, or have met. I like asking them about the process, the inspiration, and telling them what it means to me to look at it.

    This was one of my favorites books as a young child. It was falling apart and has been rebound.
    The beautiful illustrations are by Gyo Fujikawa

    I have a favorite book of fairy tales from my childhood as well. I retrieved it from my parents' house a while ago and I'm trying to remember where I put it. If I can find it I'll share a few pages.
