The Best Job In The World
Everybody's job looks better from the other side.
And I used to wish for the life of my friend Shelly. She's a marvelously talented and well-known painter. Having not one iota of artistic talent, the goal was unrealistic in the extreme.
Spent a bit of time with her tonight and talked about peaches.
Peaches. Peaches. Peaches.
She was recently doing a still life class on them. Her house was filled with peach pie, peach ice cream, peach tarts, peach sorbet, and yes...Bellinis.
And fruit flies.
You can have too much of a good thing.
So, yes. I do have The Best Job In The World.
And here is my favorite primer on art....this book will teach you how to tell the difference between the Impressionists and there's even a great architecture tutorial inside. It's a classic for a reason. Very happy it's still in print.
