I love other people’s ‘links’ post where they share things you hadn’t yet discovered yourself. So here’s a few good things I’ve found lately…
I have been enjoying this new weekly blog. Each Monday the The Reconstructionists celebrates a remarkable woman in history with a short write up (just enough to make you brainy at a dinner party!) accompanied by Lisa Congdon’s lovely illustrations.
Discovering the beautiful painting of Valériane Leblond.
Lapping up floral inspiration here
Have been reading Painter’s Keys by Robert Genn which is a twice-weekly letter to artists full of tips, facts and interesting things to know. (Found via Dana who knows the best links to share). This letter was fully of funny terms pertinent to artists. Hope it raises a giggle or too…
Snooler: A person who gushes over your work but who you suspect privately thinks he can do better but actually can’t.
Daddylongpocket: A man who buys a painting done by a woman who is suspicious that the sale took place because she has nice legs and she has.
Arstratto: A wannabe artist who knows how it’s done, knows all about it, talks about it all the time, but can’t bring himself to do it.
Lugg: A husband who inquires when dinner might be ready just as the artist has wax-resisted and is laying in a delicate wash.
Ungrept: A wife who doesn’t understand she’s living with a genius.
Continuing to love Anita Klein’s work and reading a book I got for Christmas – Through The Looking Glass. Did you know she alledgedly bought a house in Italy wth the proceeds of an exhibition…. I wish!
Well I hope you enjoy some of these and have a great weekend.
