Book Review

Second post in one day.   I recently finished reading a book that I would highly recommend:  "Leonardo Da Vinci" by Walter Isaacson.  Having sat through and been tested on many very boring art history classes in my college years, I have to say this book was extremely interesting.  I wish more of my college textbooks had been written like this one.  The author goes into much more detail about Leonardo's life - attitudes and influences - than in conventional art history books.  Very interesting read.

"Hermit Crab" and "Xmas 2017"

I have definitely been ignoring my posts - so this is "catch-up".   The first painting is an experiment so I've kept it light-hearted.  I am playing with the idea of adding texture to canvasses.   In this case, I've added sand and glitter to the acrylics.   And of course, it's intended on being humorous.

P.S. -- This piece sold - wouldn't you know...one of my least serious paintings would sell quicker that any of my other work.

Also, I wanted to post my 2017 holiday watercolor - a painting of my "Honeybee" who is the typical cat and loves boxes.
